Shani Tarashaj's hopes of forcing his way into Ronald Koeman's thinking this summer have been dashed by an operation required on his knee.

The 22-year-old was signed by Roberto Martinez from Grasshopper Zurich 18 months ago but has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Blues despite making inroads into the Swiss national team.

Tarashaj spent last season on loan in Germany with Eintracht Frankfurt, making 15 Bundesliga appearances and scoring once and officially returned to Everton this summer.

He will be out of action for an unspecified period of time now after undergoing surgery in Rome last week.
