Everton suffer fresh injury blow with Yerry Mina to miss Premier League restart

Yerry Mina will miss the start of the Premier League restart.

The Everton defender is expected to be sidelined for a number of weeks.

Colombia international Mina has suffered a partial tear in his left thigh.

It is another injury blow to the Toffees, before the resumption of the Premier League season.

The ex-Barcelona centre-half has established himself as a regular in the current campaign, which is set to restart on June 17, after an injury-hit 2018-19 season, his first with the Toffees after joining.

However, Mina will now join Jean-Philippe Gbamin on the treatment table after suffering a muscle injury in training last week.



Mina’s exit is a blow for the Toffees

A short statement on Everton’s website said: “Everton Football Club can confirm Yerry Mina is set to be sidelined for several weeks after sustaining a muscle injury.

“A scan confirmed the Colombia international suffered a partial tear in his left quad muscle during training last week.

“The 25-year-old is now in the early stages of his rehabilitation under the care of the club’s medical staff and making good progress.”

Gbamin will undergo surgery this week and the club expects the Ivory Coast international to require an “extensive period of rehabilitation”.

The 24-year-old only managed two matches for Everton following his £25million move from German side Mainz in August 2019 before being sidelined by the quad problem, which required surgery in February.

Everton kick off the Premier League’s resumption with a local derby against Liverpool on the opening weekend.

Carlo Ancelotti will likely have to select Michael Keane and Mason Holgate as his centre-back partnership in Mina’s absence.
