Yannick Bolasie set to return to training with Everton

The 28-year old DR Congo global winger was injured in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United in December 2016 and has been working hard to get back to full fitness.

Everton are expected to receive a much welcomed off-field boost as Yannick Bolasie is set to return to first team training next week, 11-months on from a serious anterior cruciate knee ligament injury which required two bouts of surgery. "I can't really say right now", Bolasie revealed.

Bolasie will be at Everton's Finch Farm training complex on Monday to rejoin his teammates, but is wary about rushing back to action before he can do himself justice.

The Congolese worldwide added that he will return to Everton on Monday and believes he will be "integrated" back into the team starting next week.

The Blues certainly need the return of Bolasie this season but the winger added he wants to make sure he's "feeling good" and that it is him on the pitch when he returns and "not just my name on the shirt".

David Unsworth is in temporary charge of the side and led them to their first victory in eight outings when beating Watford 3-2 on Sunday, and Bolasie hopes the three points can kick-start their campaign.

"100 per cent we needed that", the DR Congo worldwide added.

"Unfortunately with the way the season's gone it's not been the best for us, but hopefully we can start picking up from now".

However, speaking to Sky Sports at the Football Black List Awards, the former Crystal Palace winger was keen to play down talk of an imminent return.
