Everton captain Seamus Coleman has now revealed the extent of his injury after being stretchered off in Monday’s 2-2 draw with Leicester City.

The 34-year-old, who was signed back in 2009 by David Moyes, had to be substituted in worrying circumstances following a collision with Leicester midfielder Boubakary Soumare, and there have been concerns that the Irish international may not feature again this season.

However, the Everton skipper has provided a positive update regarding the extent of the injury he has sustained, offering hope that the influential defender could yet play a part in helping the Toffees avoid relegation.

As reported on the official Everton website, Coleman revealed in a message to the club’s fans: “Just wanted to update you all, thanks so much for all the well wishes.

Just back from my scan & pleased to say I have no ACL damage. Be back soon.”

While the right-back doesn’t state that he will make a return before the season ends, the fact he has avoided ACL damage is a very positive sign.

Coleman will hopefully feature again to help keep Everton safe

With just four games remaining and Everton slumped in 19th place in the Premier League table, Sean Dyche’s side must get points on the board, and Coleman’s availability could be crucial.

The veteran has once again faced up to challenging circumstances this season and has been one of Everton’s better performers, with his passion and leadership as evident as ever.

Even as the 34-year-old was being stretchered off at the King Power Stadium on Monday evening, he was still motivating his teammates with his fist raised in the air.

Indeed, with the Irishman’s contract up at the end of the current campaign, there were fears that he could have played his last game for the Blues, but after some positive news today, hopefully we will see Seamus Coleman in an Everton shirt again very soon.
