Everton boss Roberto Martinez expects to have Gerard Deulofeu available for the Club's trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday 9 February.
The teenage loanee has been back with parent club Barcelona since pulling a hamstring in the Blues' 4-1 win over Fulham in December.
But Martinez confirmed the Spaniard is ready to return to Merseyside this weekend, with a comeback likely for the game at White Hart Lane.
Speaking to evertontv, the Toffees chief said: "We've had some great news on Gerard Deulofeu. He's going to be back on Sunday and from that point he'll be ready to join the group and available for the Spurs game."
Deulofeu has made 14 Everton appearances to date, scoring three goals.
