Everton striker Louis Saha has been ruled out for up to another five weeks following a second scan on his hamstring injury.

The Frenchman has not played for the Toffees since the 1-0 win at Tottenham at the end of November and his absence compounds the problems manager David Moyes has up front with Ayegbeni Yakubu, James Vaughan and Victor Anichebe all ruled out.

Moyes had hoped to have the former Manchester United striker available for the Christmas fixtures, but he has now revealed the results of a secondary scan on the 30-year-old's injury.

He told the club's official website, "Louis has been re-scanned and he will be out for another four to five weeks."
