Aaron Lennon was back at Finch Farm today as the Everton players underwent rigorous pre-season testing ahead of the new campaign.
Lennon, 30, was detained under the Mental Health Act in May after concerns for his welfare, while a statement from the club at the time said he was "receiving care and treatment for a stress-related illness." However, the winger was back at the clubs training ground full of smiles on Monday as the squad began preparations for 2017/18. Despite a bright start to his career at Goodison, Lennon struggled to nail down a starting berth last season, but following the departure of wide men Gerard Deulofeu and Aidan McGeady to Barcelona and Preston North End respectively, he will be hoping to force his way back into Ronald Koeman’s thinking. Lennon is well-placed, particularly for the first half of the season, with Yannick Bolasie expected to miss the remainder of the year after suffering a serious knee injury back in December 2016.

Aaron Lennon is being detained by the police under the Mental Health Act over fears for his welfare.

Information released by Greater Manchester Police confirm that they were called to a property on Sunday afternoon, and a 30-year-old man, now known to be Lennon, was held under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act and taken to hospital for further assessment. Everton released this statement earlier today: "Aaron Lennon is receiving care and treatment for a stress-related illness. The club is supporting him through this and his family has appealed for privacy at this time." Lennon joined the club on a permanent basis in the summer of 2015 following a successful loan spell, but after a bright first season at Goodison, he has struggled, and his last Premier League start came on January 02. Sports personalities from around the globe have taken to social media to show their support for the Everton winger.

Aaron Lennon, Ross Barkley and Leighton Baines are a "serious concern" for Roberto Martinez after the trio picked up injuries during the 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night.

All three will be assessed ahead of Saturdays’ game but Martinez admits he is a little "bit worried" due to the quick turnaround in matches. "Ross [Barkley] and Aaron Lennon have been accumulating a lot of minutes," and with another three games in eight days – which includes a Merseyside derby plus an FA Cup semi-final – Martinez may consider resting the pair. Lennon is said to suffering from a hamstring related problem while Barkley took a knock late on. Leighton Baines played the full 90 but couldn't move freely in the last five minutes due to a groin issue.

Roberto Martinez is hoping to have three of his influential first teamers available for this weekends’ FA Cup quarter-final tie against Chelsea.

Tom Cleverley has missed the last two games due to a chest infection while teammate Gareth Barry was restricted to a role from the bench at Goodison Park on Saturday after struggling to shake off a similar problem. Martinez also revealed Lennon will be checked after the winger was replaced as a precaution during the defeat to West Ham: "Aaron is the player that we need to monitor," said the Toffees boss. "His hamstring is really tight and he has put enormous effort into the last two games. Over the next 48 hours we will find out a bit more." There are no other concerns although Kevin Mirallas is suspended following his sending off.

Aston Villa proved a welcoming host as Everton went up 3-0 and eventually won 3-1 at Villa Park.

Everton got goals from Ramiro Funes Mori, Aaron Lennon and Romelu Lukaku and cruised by last place Aston Villa at Villa Park on Tuesday. Rudy Gestede pulled back a late goal but it wasn't nearly enough. Everton had the advantage of an off weekend while Villa played on Saturday and the difference showed as the Toffees got off to a quick start and never let as they were far more clinical with their finishing than their opponents were.

Aaron Lennon scored the first goal of the match from a Romelu Lukaku assist as Everton drew with Spurs 1-1 at Goodison Park.

The first half was all Spurs with the north London side dominating possession and having nearly all of the chances. Everton scored on their first real attack of the match with Aaron Lennon taking a Romelu Lukaku knock down and putting it past the excellent Hugo Lloris. The Toffees couldn't quite see off the half ahead as Deli Alli scored in first half stoppage time to even the score. The second half was a wild, end-to-end affair but despite a number of good chances both ways, no one could break the deadlock.

Aaron Lennon makes his first start for Everton since making his loan deal permanent, but Everton can't find a way to break through against a sturdy Manchester United defence in 3-0 loss.

Lennon started in place of Gerard Deulofeu and gave Marcos Rojo a handful of problems down the flank. But the former Spurs winger could not do enough to propel the Toffees past second-place United. Phil Jagielka and Gareth Barry were caught out of position far too often as Wayne Rooney and Ander Herrera spent too much time on the ball in advanced positions. Ross Barkley led Everton with five shots, but David De Gea stood strong in goal to give the Red Devils their first win at Goodison Park in their last four matches. Romelu Lukaku's goal streak ends at two games despite multiple chances. In team news, Seamus Coleman and John Stones returned to the starting XI while Steven Naismith was relieved at half-time by Arouna Kone.

Aaron Lennon has made his loan move to Everton from the second half of last season permanent as he moves to Goodison Park.

Lennon was fairly effective in both the real world and fantasy in his time at Everton last season. With the move now going permanent, Lennon will be a nice potential second tier waiver wire pick-up for fantasy managers who miss out on big signings like Kevin De Bruyne.

With interest cooling on making Tottenham loanee Aaron Lennon’s move permanent, attention has switched to Borussia Dortmund’s Shinji Kagawa.

The Japanese number 10 is believed to be surplus to requirements at Dortmund, as the new manager Thomas Tuchel begins the re-build operation after the departure of larger-than-life Jurgen Klopp. Kagawa joined Manchester United in 2012 for £16 million, but never really established himself as first choice. His 38 appearances over two seasons returned just six goals (three of them in one match) but he was popular with the home crowd. Many feeling he suffered due to the Ferguson-Moyes transition. His neat, inventive play will suit the game Martinez wants to play he will be able to link up with another victim of the United/Moyes experiment. A fee of around £7 million is thought to be required.

Everton had their three game win streak snapped today but they still managed a point with a 1-1 draw against Swansea City, with the Toffee goal supplied by Aaron Lennon.

After feeling each other out for the majority of the first half, the deadlock was broken in the 41st minute. James McCarthy made a run down the left and was able to turn his cross back toward the front of goal where Lennon had been left unmarked. He slotted it home, giving him his second goal in three. With an assist added in from four matches ago, it is clear that Lennon is a major influence in their attack right now and should be a safe bet for a start next weekend. Stevem Pienaar looked sharp as well, coming in to replace Leon Osman who looked to have suffered a groin strain. With a shortened fixture list next weekend and a plus matchup, there should be a Toffee or two in your XI for Week 34.

Investing in Everton attacking players has proven to be extremely risky as Roberto Martinez juggles his XI from week to week.

Aaron Lennon was quiet this past weekend after he had scored his first goal on his loan spell in the previous league match against QPR. He has been earning starts since Kevin Mirallas went down injured but Mirallas could be back at any time. Unless the Belgian is officially ruled out by Friday, backing Lennon, who has already passed Mirallas in price in the Yahoo game, is a risk. Then there's the curious case of Ross Barkley, who shows flashes of promise but has only started four of the past nine. Steven Naismith, only one goal behind Lukaku for the club lead, can't seem to buy a start, having done so just once in the last five. This creates plenty of budget prices across the board but at the cost of a possible zero if you invest. They do have the early Saturday kickoff this week however, so those playing fantasy games other than Yahoo may have a chance to see team news and make necessary changes before the deadline.

Aaron Lennon scored his first goal for Everton as they beat a spirited QPR side at Loftus Road and eased concerns about Premier League relegation.

Seamus Coleman put Everton 1-0 up in the first half with a clinical finish on the counter attack but QPR equalised when substitute Eduardo Vargas took advantage of some slack defending at a corner to tuck the ball home. Both teams pressed for a winner but it remained 1-1 until the final 15 minutes when Aaron Lennon, on loan from Tottenham, struck the decisive goal for the Toffees from close range to secure the points. This win should ensure Everton avoid a relegation battle over the last eight games but QPR remain deep in the mire, four points from safety.

Aaron Lennon hasn't single-handedly turned the season around for Everton but he has shown a glimpse of promise for a side who is otherwise disappointing fantasy managers at every position.

We had our eyes on Lennon since he made the loan move over the winter as his lack of pitch time at Tottenham lowered his market price to a very attractive figure. Still available at a price below 5m, he got the start last time out and put up seven points. It is certainly nothing to stop the presses for, but from a point per pound perspective, that is good value. Add in the fact that he only completes 59 minutes leads one to assume he can do more if given a full shift. If the Toffees are going to start grabbing results, someone will have to step up. At this point, Lennon is as good a candidate as any.

Everton have acquired the services of Aaron Lennon on a loan deal from Tottenham that will last until the end of the season.

A pretty significant acquisition for Roberto Martinez as he looks to steer the Toffees back on track and finish the season in a respectable position. Reports earlier in the day had the right midfielder heading to Stoke on loan, with Hull and QPR entering the conversation for a moment as well, but in the end, Lennon preferred what Everton had to offer, which among other things, is more guaranteed pitch time. Aiden McGeady stands to become a strict substitute option for Lennon and Kevin Mirallas while Steven Pienaar continues to fade into obscurity, currently in the physio room due to lack of match fitness. At 27, Lennon has seen his stock fall in recent years after being a hot prospect in his earlier twenties. At 4.52m in the Yahoo game, he is worth a potential stash-and-see for those looking for a spark in their midfield, the loan might spark a run of form for him.

West Ham are interested in acquiring Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon.

This is a great fit and makes sense from all angles. Tottenham haven't played Lennon much, with arguably better options available in town, and it would make sense to sell him at his market price. West Ham, on the other hand, could really use some pace on the wings. They couldn't create chances this year and they need creativity and speed as soon as possible. Sunderland are also said to be interested in Lennon.
