However, the update from 23-year-old Iwobi suggests he could be in line for a return in no distant time so he will be available for selection under new manager, Carlo Ancelotti who has barely seen the summer signing in action for the Toffees since he took over the reigns at Goodison Park.

Iwobi who has managed to score twice and provided one assist in as much as 20 games for Everton this season will surely be aiming to improve on his statistics when he finally hits the pitch for the Merseyside outfit. It will equally be interesting to see where the Nigerian midfielder fits into the plans of his Italian boss who he has not played a minute under.
