Coleman back in training with Everton

Seamus Coleman is back in training with Premier League side Everton.

The Republic of Ireland captain has been out since March of last year, when he suffered a double leg fracture in the World Cup Qualifier against Wales back.

His absence was keenly felt by the national side, as they lost out to Denmark in the play-offs for this summer’s tournament.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce told the club’s AGM last night that the Killybegs man is getting closer to a return.

And it will come as a massive boost to Toffees fans, as the former Sligo Rovers defender has been a virtual ever-present in the starting eleven and one of the club’s most consistent performers for a number of years.
