Seamus Coleman is back in the Everton treatment room after suffering a muscle injury during the win over Crystal Palace.
The Republic of Ireland international was making only his second Premier League start after spending the previous 10 months working his way back from a double leg fracture. However, his afternoon was cut short after suffering a setback. "I don't know what Seamus' injury is but he's going for a scan tomorrow," Sam Allardyce said. "It's unrelated to his broken leg. It's more a muscle injury. The scan will be taken tomorrow but we are going warm weather training next week which is good, a bit of warmth a bit of sea." Minor niggles and muscular strains are to be expected given the amount of time Coleman has missed as his body adapts to the increase in load and the rigours of playing competitively again. Everton are back in action on February 24 – Watford away – but if he fails to recover then Allardyce is likely to opt for a Jonjo Kenny as a like-for-like replacement. Feb 11 - 1:40 PM

Seamus Coleman will make his long-awaited return to first-team action against Leicester City on Wednesday.

Speaking ahead of the Premier League clash at Goodison Park tomorrow, manager Sam Allardyce confirmed the Republic of Ireland international would be included following his recent run out for the under-23s. Coleman has been sidelined since suffering a double leg fracture back in March 2017, but having trained regularly, and after coming through 58 minutes unscathed in a development match, he is now ready to return. "Seamus is in the squad for Wednesday and it seems, hopefully, that from here on in, he can have an injury-free run until the end of the season," said Allardyce. "He is a very important player. But, if and when he does play in the team, he needs time. He has been out an awful long time, as was the case with Yannick Bolasie." James McCarthy is recovering well from surgery while Funes Mori is back training with the squad, although he is not taking part in full sessions.

Seamus Coleman took a major step toward returning from a horrific injury by playing for the U23s on Tuesday.

Coleman has been out since last March after suffering a broken leg while with the Irish national team. But on Tuesday, he made his return to action by playing 58 minutes for the U23s at Goodison Park. The goal is to get the right-back in with the first team next month after nearly a year out. Said Coleman: "To be able to walk out of the tunnel and see the stadium was great. I managed to get some minutes under my belt and that was fantastic. I treated it like a first-team game and gave it everything. I've been looking forward to that moment for the last few months..."

Seamus Coleman is edging nearer to a return after stepping up his recovery from a double leg fracture.

Speaking at the club’s AGM meeting on Tuesday, Sam Allardyce confirmed Coleman "has started training" although he wouldn’t be drawn on a specific timeline on when the right-back would be available for selection. In December, the Everton boss revealed that Coleman was being used as a guinea pig by trialling "a new machine" at Finch Farm [the latest on the market] which was producing excellent results in terms of speeding up the recovery process. However, where once Coleman would have been a shoo-in on his return to full fitness, the 29-year-old must now compete with the impressive Jonjoe Kenny who has come of age this season after stepping into the breach. The Everton youngster, who joined the club aged just nine, recently signed a new contract extension which will tie him to Goodison until June 2022.

Everton is gearing up for the return of two key starters with Yannick Bolasie and Seamus Coleman closing on a return.

While initially hoping for the duo to return this month, Everotn caretaker manager David Unsworth said Bolasie and Coleman will be back from long-term injuries for the New Year, with Bolasie even hoping for a return in the next couple weeks. "Probably late December, going into the new year. Probably Yannick will be a bit before but certainly Seamus will be going into January. They are two massive players, aren’t they, and if we can get those two players back into the team and James McCarthy as well, we will look a lot stronger.

Everton will have to wait a little bit longer than expected for the return of Seamus Coleman and Yannick Bolasie.

The duo has missed much of the past year recovering from long-term injuries, and while the club is reluctant to put a timeframe on their respective returns, manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that they are not expected back until November. "I think it will be November, instead of October. They are both working hard, going in the right direction but it's long-term injuries. Seamus is out a long time, but they are doing well, going well on their schedule to come back but it's not up to me, we expect them back in full training in November."

Seamus Coleman is battling his way back to full fitness but admits it’s too early to say when he will be ready for a return to competitive action.

The Everton full-back suffered a horrific double leg break while representing Ireland in a World Cup qualifier against Wales almost three months ago. Following surgery, in which his leg was pinned and screwed, Coleman spent some time in his hometown of Donegal before returning to Finch Farm to start the long road back to peak fitness: "Progress is being made," he said. "I'm doing all that I'm being asked of so far and I just have to keep going that way." However, hopes of an early return were quickly dashed when Coleman went onto add: "There is no end date - I'm just wanting to tick the boxes early on and keep improving." The average recovery time for this type of injury is around 9 months, which means Coleman faces a race against time to play again this year.

Everton officially announced defender Seamus Coleman has signed a new five-year contract through the 2022 season.

The 28-year-old was originally due to sign the deal after returning from the international break in March, but the Republic of Ireland international suffered a broken leg that will likely see him miss the rest of the year. However, the club had no reservations about issuing a five-year contract given his track record. Coleman becomes the second Everton player after Dominic Calvert-Lewis to sign a new contract this week. Said Coleman: "I’m really excited by the way things are going and the players we have signed. This season has been good and we’ve got Europa League football next season to look forward to. It’s exciting and it’s all about pushing ourselves. I’m really happy that I am going to be here for the foreseeable future."

Seamus Coleman is likely to miss the rest 2017 after sustaining a double leg fracture during Friday night’s World Cup qualifier against Wales in Dublin.

The Everton wing-back was on the receiving end of a horrific Neil Taylor challenge which left Coleman sprawled on the Aviva Stadium turf with Shane Long comforting his international teammate before being stretchered off. Coleman will have surgery, most likely a plate and screw method, to fix the fracture. Typically, recovery from this type of injury will physically take around 9 months, although the timeline can be affected by setbacks or complications during rehab. However, psychologically it may take a little longer for Coleman to return to the peak of his game. Following a similar injury in 2010, Aaron Ramsey admitted he didn’t feel fully confident and back to his best until three years later. We wish Coleman all the very best and a speedy recovery.

Everton wing-back and Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman has undergone surgery after suffering a horrific injury in his country's World Cup Qualifier on Friday night.

Coleman sustained the double leg fracture after a reckless challenge by Aston Villa's Neil Taylor in the 0-0 draw in Dublin. He went through surgery on Saturday morning to have screws inserted into his right leg to help the healing process. The extent of the injury means that the Irish skipper may not play again until 2018, and rules out any chance of a summer move which had been rumoured owing to his consistency and brilliance this season for club and country alike. Instead, the 28 year-old will go through months of rehabilitation to get back on the pitch and continue his sparkling career.

Everton suffered a major blow on Friday night with Seamus Coleman suffering a broken leg while on international duty.

The right-back was taken on a stretcher in the 68th minute of the Republic of Ireland's 0-0 draw against Wales on Friday in an international friendly and was taken to the hospital. Now Coleman faces a lengthy rehabilitation period after put together a good season for the Toffees, including four goals and three assists. Said Ireland manager Martin O'Neill: "It's a bad break. Seamus is a fantastic player and character - it's a major blow for the lad, for his club and for us. Apparently it wasn't the best challenge in the world - I haven't seen it back - but naturally disappointed. He's gone to hospital and I think it's broken. I saw Seamus' reaction - he was holding his leg up and it didn't look good."

Seamus Coleman scored a late first half equalizer as Everton came from behind to pick up a point on the road against Stoke City.

Seamus Coleman seems to have rediscovered his goalscoring boots. After scoring twice in the first half of the season the right back has doubled that total over the past two Premier League matches. There was a hint of offsides about the goal as Romelu Lukaku was near Coleman's shot in an offside position but was judged not to have interfered as the Ireland international's shot found the net. Coleman's goal equalized an early strike from former Liverpool man Peter Crouch.

Everton waited until the end to steal three points from Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park thanks to Seamus Coleman.

The right-back rummaged down the wing, where youth star Tom Davies found the Irish international with a through ball. Coleman collected himself and fired a shot past Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey for the match-winner, his fourth goal of the season, in the 87th minute make it three wins on the trot for the Toffees and five straight Premier League matches without a loss. For once, Everton didn't need the help of Romelu Lukaku, who entered the match with three goals in his last four league matches. With the win, Everton now moves five points back of sixth-place Manchester United, who drew at Stoke.

Seamus Coleman is expected to be in the Everton lineup against Watford this weekend, according to Ronald Koeman.

The right-back only just returned to training on Thursday after sustaining a knock that saw him leave the club's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday. But Koeman said the Irish international came through training without an issue and is set to be available for the weekend:"Seamus is okay. He did a normal first training session today. In the beginning of the week he still had some pain but it looks positive. Normally I’d expect him to be available for the match."

Everton responded from its 5-0 thrashing at Stamford Bridge before the break to earn a point in a 1-1 draw with Swansea City.

The Toffees went behind in the first half after captain Phil Jagielka clumsily bowled over Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson inside the box that led to a penalty, which the Icelandic international put away easily to go into the half with a 1-0 lead. But it was Seamus Coleman who righted his fellow defender's wrong with a last-gasp effort in the 89th minute. Following a scramble in the penalty area, a poor Swansea City clearance dropped to the right-back near the six-yard box before heading the ball just past Lukasz Fabianski and into the top corner to steal the point.
