Everton take on West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and manager Marco Silva has been given a boost ahead of the game.

The Toffees come back from the international break beaten and bruised, with Theo Walcott and Dominic Calvert-Lewin in a race against time to be fit, whilst Seamus Coleman is out.

With concerns over a host of other players, Silva will have been desperate to receive any sort of positive injury news – and he has been given it.

 

Defender Yerry Mina joined the club on deadline day back in August, arriving in a big-money move from Barcelona in order to bolster Silva's defensive options.

The giant centre back only moved to Barca from Palmeiras in January, but having found playing time hard to come by, Mina decided to move on to Goodison Park.

Mina hit three goals in three games for Colombia at the World Cup in Russia this summer, and Everton fans have been excited to see him in action.

However, Mina arrived with an injury and hasn't yet been able to make his debut, which is a major blow given injuries to Michael Keane and Phil Jagielka.

Today though, Mina has been in training with Everton today alongside fellow deadline day arrival Kurt Zouma, with photos of him finally training no doubt coming as a huge boost to Silva and Everton fans.
