The Republic of Ireland global is not the only key player nearing a return to first-team action, with the former Crystal Palace boss also confirming that he is close to welcoming back Leighton Baines, who has been out of action since November.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce confirmed at the club's general meeting that the Ireland captain has begun training once again.

Everton Manager Sam Allardyce told an Everton general meeting in Liverpool on Tuesday night "Seamus Coleman is due back. He has started training".

Allardyce's side have been operating with Jonjoe Kenny and others in Coleman's absence this season, but most would expect the 29-year-old to slot back in when he's fully fit.

While no further details of his comeback were given, it's doubtful Coleman will be rushed back given the nature of his injury.

Seamus broke his leg playing for Ireland. Coleman was representing his country in a World Cup Qualifier against Wales in Dublin when he suffered the injury after a tackle from Welsh defender Neil Taylor.
