Sylvain Distin is back and training for Everton and could possibly make the squad for their trip to West Bromwich Albion Monday night.
Roberto Martinez indicated that Distin has come out of four days of rigorous training in good condition, so the Frenchman's hamstring issue appears to be behind him. Still, there is no reason to risk investing in him this weekend should Martinez decide to give the veteran a bit more time. John Stones had been a nice budget fill in for the short term, but he can no longer be relied upon for starts. Jan 16 - 12:00 PM

Sylvain Distin picked up a minor hamstring knock after completing his shift against Souhampton over the weekend, but Rberto Martinez says the veteran should still be fit for Everton's New Year's Day match with Stoke City.

With Phil Jageilka already all but ruled out, Martinez is hoping to have Distin available who would likely partner Antolin Alcaraz in the center of the Toffee defense. Alcaraz remains a strong bet to deputize for someone and would be a budget friendly option for those banking on an Everton clean sheet.

Sylvain Distin picked up a knock against Norwich last weekend and isn't a sure thing to recover in time for the Saturday match with West Brom.

Roberto Martinez said "Sylvain Distin is the one we're a little bit concerned about, but knowing Sylvain, you can never say that he's not going to be available at the weekend." Talk about a lot of words that add up to nothing definitive. I'd avoid him and go with Leighton Baines (if you can afford him) or Phil Jagielka.

Everton, fresh off of their acquisition of Gerard Deulofeu, are looking to strengthen their defense with Porto's Rolando the rumored target.

Everton must get younger at the back and Rolando, while not young at 27, would certainly be a move in the right direction age-wise with Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka aging. The defender gained some top tier experience last season on loan at Napoli and would represent the sort of defensive purchase that Roberto Martinez could never make at Wigan due to budget constraints. The only concern for Everton, given their spending so far this summer, is who will be leaving to fund it. It seems hard to believe that they can continue to buy with no departures to balance the books.
