James McCarthy is closing in on a return to action after stepping up his recovery from injury.
The Everton midfielder suffered a double-leg fracture in a challenge with Salomon Rondon which left McCarthy needing surgery. Fortunately, club and country team-mate, Seamus Coleman, was on hand to support his best friend having recovered from a similar injury in early 2018. "It is a big shock for him and a big shock for his family," Coleman said at the time. "It is probably going to give me the motivation to be as good as I can possibly be to show James that there is a way back from it." Now, eight months on, manager Marco Silva confirms McCarthy is closing in on his comeback. "He is progressing well. We expect in the next weeks to start, slow-by-slow and step-by-step, working with the team." There is even some suggestion that McCarthy will be available for the internationals in October, although he would need a seamless transition into the first team fold without any setbacks to stand a realistic chance.
