Darron Gibson has signed a new two-year deal at Everton keeping the Republic of Ireland midfielder at Goodison Park until 2018.
Following another injury-plagued season [Gibson was limited to just seven Premier League appearances including two starts], Martin O’Neill decided against taking the 28-year-old to France due to concerns over his fitness. While many expected Gibson -- who has been linked with a number of loan moves away from the club -- to leave in the summer, Everton moved quickly to secure the services of the former Manchester United player ahead of the impending arrival of new boss Ronald Koeman. "I am absolutely delighted," said Gibson. "I had a few options but as long as Everton were giving me the option I was never going anywhere else." Fri, Jun 10, 2016 04:28:00 AM

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said he would be open to allowing midfielders Darron Gibson and Aiden McCarthy leaving on loan this winter if the right deal comes along.

Said Martinez: "We have had a lot of interest in Darron Gibson and Aiden McGeady and we need to sit down and consider what is the next step. It has been disappointing for them not to have enough minutes on the pitch and they need to be playing until the end of the season due to the opportunity of playing for Ireland in the Euros." Both players started the season with injuries but have seen little playing time since returning to full fitness. Gibson has only four league appearances this season without a start while McGeady has only been in the team sheet once this season and is without a league appearance.

Darron Gibson, Bryan Oviedo and Leighton Baines will not take part in the upcoming Barclays Asia Trophy and will remain on Merseyside as they continue their rehabilitation at Finch Farm.

Gibson and Oviedo are recovering from metatarsal fractures [foot] while Baines had a "straightforward procedure" to cure a niggling ankle issue at the end of last season. The left-back is said to be "well ahead" of schedule and the trio should be "there or thereabouts" for the season opener against newly promoted Watford. Tom Cleverley and Gerard Deulofeu will be a part of the squad that travels to Singapore while Roberto Martinez still hopes to add numbers. The Toffees are linked with a $12 million move for Scott Dann and are believed to be targeting Juventus defender Angelo Ogbonna.

Everton midfielder Darron Gibson may not play again this season after the club confirmed the Irish international fractured his metatarsal in training.

Gibson had been available for the visit of Southampton on Saturday after overcoming a minor abdominal problem which prompted his early return from international duty. However during the build-up to GW31 Gibson suffered a foot injury which threatens to end his season with a decision yet to be made whether he requires surgery - either way with only 7 games remaining the chances of recovery are unlikely. Everton were able to secure third successive win against Southampton – a game which marked the return of Gareth Barry, Kevin Mirallas plus Steven Pienaar – and the fit-again trio should help to ensure the Toffees have a number of midfield selection options for the remainder of the campaign.

Roberto Martinez is hoping Darron Gibson will be available to face Southampton in GW31 following the Everton midfielders withdrawal from the Republic of Ireland squad due to a minor abdominal strain.

Gibson is one of a handful of players currently undergoing treatment at Finch Farm with Arouna Kone [knee & ankle] and Kevin Mirallas [dead leg] targeting a quick return while Romelu Lukaku [hamstring] is recovering with his national team in Belgium. Martinez confirmed South African midfielder Steven Pienaar [knee] will be back in full training from Monday after almost four months on the sidelines with Tony Hibbert also closing in on a return. Bryan Oviedo is progressing but could be a few weeks yet although he "is getting stronger every day" and Gareth Barry has completed a two match ban for his accumulation of 10 yellow cards.

Darron Gibson was the central defensive midfielder who got the start in place of Gareth Barry, who is serving a suspension, in Everton's win over Newcastle this past weekend.

While Gibson was part of an Everton side that performed better than any XI in quite some time, it didn't translate to fantasy success for him. He ended up with just a single point. That would indicate without a goal or an assist, he isn't prone to accumulating points, so even though he looks a good bet to deputize until Barry returns and Everton are facing off against a lackluster QPR side, investment in Gibson is not recommended.

Roberto Martinez confirmed that Darron Gibson is set to return to training next week for Everton, and hopes to see the midfielder in action again before season's end.

Gibson will provide depth upon his return, but with two central defensive midfield positions in Martinez's system, Gareth Barry and James McCarthy have had solid seasons and will likely continue their partnership through the remainder of the season. Still, he is young, has room to grow, and should figure more heavily next season assuming he stays fit.

Darron Gibson is set to miss significant time away from action for the second time already this season, after injuring his knee while playing for Republic of Ireland in their midweek World Cup qualifier.

This is shaping up to be a lost season for Gibson as he can't seem to stay on the pitch for very long without sustaining an injury. With Gareth Barry and James McCarthy added to Everton's midfield during the transfer window, Roberto Martinez isn't heavily dependent on Gibson's health. When he eventually does return to fitness, Gibson may find it difficult to crack the starting eleven.

Darron Gibson started in the Capital One Cup for Everton in mid-week marking his first action since the start of the 2013-14 campaign.

Darron Gibson has been missing all season so far after a strong pre-season showing. The midfielder started in the Toffees' League Cup match on Tuesday and played 68 minutes. Gibson's ability to start two matches in succession coming off of a significant injury layoff isn't certain but managers should expect him to be involved to at least some extent this weekend with increasing participation in the weeks ahead. Gibson still hasn't proven himself as a productive fantasy player but at a reasonable price (6.31) he is worth monitoring.

Darron Gibson is back in training for Everton but according to reports will not make it back until after the international break.

The break comes at exactly the right time for the former Manchester United man. If he doesn't play on Saturday then presumably Roberto Martinez would be justified in holding him out of Ireland's qualifier with Sweden on the 6th. Just how Gibson would feel about that isn't known but from Everton's point of view it would be ideal to give him the two weeks to fully recover from the injury and regain as much fitness as possible. Regardless, look for Fellaini in the holding role and Barkley attacking.

Darron Gibson's knee strain is lingering and may, according to Roberto Martinez, keep him out until after the International Break.

With Ross Barkley's goal-scoring performance, Martinez will feel he's in good hands until Gibson can return to the line-up. If Barkley has another strong performance this coming weekend, it will make Martinez's choice an interesting one when Gibson comes back as he never staked a strong claim to a starting spot under David Moyes.

Darron Gibson picked up a knee strain late in the pre-season and is rated at 50/50 to be fit for Everton's first match of the season.

Roberto Martinez seems to like the former Manchester United midfielder but it seems unlikely that Gibson would have started as Everton enjoy relatively good health among their starters heading into the season. Still, Gibson is no worse than a key reserve for the Toffees so his absence will definitely thin Martinez's bench.
