Everton have confirmed that midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin will not require surgery on the medial ligament injury he suffered in training.
Gbamin signed for the Toffees back in 2019 but has only featured in three matches for the Merseysiders.
Two of those came in 2019 before the Ivorian made his comeback from injury in the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace last week.
However, just days later, Gbamin suffered another injury blow.
Defender Lucas Digne fell onto the player in training, leading to medial ligament damage and another long-term problem for Gbamin.
Now, Everton have confirmed following a scan that Gbamin will not require surgery on the injury.
In a statement on their website, they said: “Everton midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin will not require surgery on the medial collateral ligament knee contact injury he sustained during training at the weekend.”
Despite this positive news, Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that the Ivorian will not feature again this season.
