Everton midfielder Andre Gomes has returned to action after suffering an horrific fracture dislocation to his ankle in November.
The 26-year-old played an hour of a behind-closed-doors friendly at the club’s Finch Farm training base on Sunday, and medical staff reported no issues following the run out.
Everton tweeted an update, which read: “Andre Gomes today played the full 60 minutes in an 11-a-side game made up of first-team players and under-23s, with no issues reported by the club’s medical staff.”
Gomes was playing for the first time since suffering the injury following a tackle from Son Heung-min during Everton’s 1-1 draw against Tottenham at Goodison Park on November 3.
He will now continue training with the first-team squad ahead of the Premier League trip to Arsenal next weekend.
