Seamus Coleman looks set to make his long-awaited return to Premier League action this week.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce has confirmed he'll be in the squad for the Toffee's game against Leicester on Wednesday.

The Republic of Ireland captain has been out of action since breaking his leg during his country's World Cup Qualifier against Wales back in March.

However his manager has added him back into the side, after the right back came through a game with Everton's under-23s last week.

"Touch wood hopefully from here on in he can have an injury-free until the end of the season," said Sam Allardyce.

He added, "He's a very important player as we all know and, from my personal point of view, if and when he does play in the team he needs time.

"He can't be expected to hit top form immediately."
