Everton star out for four weeks

Published Add your comment

Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell will be out for four weeks with a hamstring injury, the club have confirmed.

The 18-year-old sustained the injury after eight minutes of last week's Europa League defeat by BATE Borisov and, after a scan on Friday, he will miss the Christmas fixtures against Sunderland and Burnley in the Barclays Premier League, and Carlisle in the FA Cup.

Rodwell, who has made 22 starts for the Toffees this season, joins fellow midfielders Mikel Arteta and Phil Neville on the Goodison injury list.

Everton hope club captain Neville is nearing a return from his knee injury.
