Everton midfielder Tom Davies has undergone successful surgery on an injured hamstring.
The 23-year-old, who was nearing a return from the knee issue that sidelined him following Everton’s draw with Tottenham Hotspur in November, sustained the hamstring problem at the end of December.
Investigations revealed a high-grade tendon injury that required surgical intervention. The procedure was carried out in London on Tuesday.
Davies, who has scored one goal in seven appearances this season, will return to USM Finch Farm to work towards his comeback under the care of Everton’s medical staff.
