Everton defender Seamus Coleman resumes training after breaking leg

Seamus Coleman has been out of action since March.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce says Seamus Coleman is back in training nearly 10 months after breaking his leg.

Coleman, 29, suffered a double break of his right leg following a tackle with Wales' Neil Taylor back in March while playing for the Republic of Ireland in a World Cup qualifier.

Speaking at Everton's annual general meeting, Allardyce said: "Seamus Coleman is due back. He has started training."

Last month Allardyce revealed Everton were using the latest technology to help with Coleman with his recovery.

He said: "We have a new machine which is the latest in the market so he's a little bit of a guinea pig on that.

"But it seems to be working from that point of view, to speed up the recovery process and there's a few more players who will be testing it out in the next week or two. I would have thought by the results we'll be purchasing one hopefully."

Academy graduate Jonjoe Kenny, 20, has recently been occupying Coleman's right-back spot.
