Middlesbrough defender Robert Huth is expected to return to full training later this week.

The 24-year-old Germany international, who has been plagued by injuries since his £6million switch from Chelsea to the Riverside Stadium in August, 2006, is closing in on his latest comeback after recovering from an ankle problem.

Huth last played for the club against West Brom on September 27, but despite his anticipated return to training, he is unlikely to make Sunday's trip to Everton.

Manager Gareth Southgate told the Evening Gazette: "We are hoping to have Robert back soon. He was playing very well for us before he was injured and he is not a player we want to be without.

"But we will give him the chance to ease his way back in gradually. He won't be ready to travel to Everton."

Striker Mido is also close to a return from his hamstring problem, but he too is unlikely to make the game at Goodison Park.
