Everton winger Theo Walcott says he cannot wait to get back into action for the club.

Walcott missed the pre-season game with Rennes last weekend through injury but has now since returned to training.

 

Last night he sent a message to supporters on Instagram, commenting that he is back at full health and ready to get started.

Walcott says he expects to be involved in Everton's friendly with Valencia this weekend.

 

This is an important season for Walcott after a difficult campaign last year.

He barely played for Arsenal in the first half of the season, before making a mid-season switch to Everton.

He started promisingly but did not achieve his goal of making the England squad for the World Cup.

This is another fresh start for him under new Toffees boss Marco Silva and he will want to prove he deserves to play a key role.

A strong showing against Valencia this weekend in front of the home support will be important and will lift his confidence too.
