Everton midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin has suffered another injury blow according to a report by the Athletic.
Gbamin made his first Toffees appearance for 19 months in the 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace.
It was hoped that marked the beginning of a gradual return to full fitness but he has apparently suffered another setback.
The report claims he has suffered a ‘freak’ injury, unrelated to the quad and Achilles problems which kept him out for so long before.
The report claims that he might not play again this season – although that is still up in the air.
Either way, it’s rotten luck for Gbamin, who was due a break after such a tough start to his time at Goodison Park.
There was plenty of sympathy for the midfielder among the fanbase who just want to see him fit and well again.
Here’s how the news went down with some Everton fans as their injury-hit season took another blow:
