Yerry Mina, An­dre Gomes fi­nally close in on de­buts

Observer on Saturday - - Sport - Daily Mail

Ever­ton could be boosted by four re­turn­ing play­ers af­ter the in­ter­na­tional break.

James McCarthy moved a step closer to mak­ing his long-awaited re­turn when com­ing through a be­hind closed doors train­ing match.

And he was joined by dead­line day sign­ings Yerry Mina and An­dre Gomes, who haven’t played since ar­riv­ing from Barcelona.

McCarthy, who suf­fered a dou­ble leg break play­ing for the Tof­fees in Jan­uary, came through a 60-minute match at Finch Farm un­scathed.

If he gets through train­ing in the next week with­out any is­sues he could make the bench for the home fix­ture against Crys­tal Palace on Oc­to­ber 20. Ever­ton boss Marco Silva could

be fur­ther boosted by the re­turn­ing


Yerry Mina, An­dre Gomes and young­ster Beni Baningime, who all came through the same ses­sion with no ill ef­fects.


Colom­bia cen­tre-back Mina re­sumed train­ing with his team­mates in midSeptem­ber af­ter a month of re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion fol­low­ing his £27mil­lion sum­mer move.

Af­ter a step back­wards af­ter bruis­ing his foot in a mi­nor train­ing­ground col­li­sion he is now in full train­ing again and came through the hour-long clash with no prob­lems.

Por­tu­gal in­ter­na­tional Gomes is also clos­ing in on a first Tof­fees ap­pear­ance fol­low­ing his dead­line day loan deal.

ALL IN: Yerry Mina and An­dre Gomes sign their con­tracts at Ever­ton FC.
