There were fears that the 25-year-old had sufficiently damaged the medial ligament in his knee when Lucas Digne accidentally fell on him during a practice match at Finch Farm that it would need surgery.
However, a scan undertaken in London today revealed that he will just need to rehabilitate the injury as normal over the next couple of months with a view to trying to make another comeback at the start of next season.
In his time at Everton since signing from the Bundesliga in the summer of 2019, Gbamin has had to have three surgeries, two to correct a torn quadriceps muscle and another to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon.
He has still only played less than two full games for the Toffees after making a 12-minute cameo against Crystal Palace nine days ago.

However, it won't matter how great or poor a player he is if he gets as much good luck in the next few seasons as he's had bad luck in the last couple. He'll be winning everything in sight & becoming european player of the year in the process!

The criticism I believe has been the standard of recruitment until recently for the investment made.

Go for it, young man.

This season threatens to go into freefall as our injured mount-up. Carlo has managed to keep a lid on injury news as well as severity so who knows if Calvert-Lewin will be back or if he is back, whether he will be playing with a significant niggle. Even if we get the likes of Allan back they will take a few games to get up to speed and time is running out.
It is clear that the squad is too small. Europa League would really put more strain on the club but I suppose qualification might strengthen Carlo's hand in transfer negotiations and budget talks. Personally, I fear something of a meltdown with some tough fixtures lined-up.

Good luck to him and let's hope he can finally put behind what has no doubt been a terrible period for him, both professionally and personally.
He's young enough to overcome; let's get him ready for next season.

And, does anyone actually know what is wrong with Delph?
Has he got one of Carlo's "small problems" but which keeps players off the field for weeks or months?
I never used to be paranoid but these inhouse injuries are pushing me that way.
25 Posted 15/04/2021 at 10:48:56
Im a pretty reasonable person and I know injuries cant helped but Delph really annoys me! Im think he actually thinks he some sort of star whos doing us a favour?
His contribution to this club has been zero.

Just an hunch, but like I say, I can't back that up.
27 Posted 15/04/2021 at 13:57:58
Perhaps Everton need to have clauses in the contracts of players with previous lengthy injury spells with their other clubs that their salary is reduced, or covered by the player's insurance, if they suffer a similar injury except when incurred in a 1st X1 match. It might save our officials/management from losing face or do their research for them.

I do wonder what goes on at finch farm. It was apparently a contact injury in training, when I fail to see much contact from our players during actual games.

Remember Peter Reid had previously suffered from two broken legs before he came to us but he worked out ok.
Have faith and give the lad a chance, a despair at some of the naysayers !

What is said to the press may only be for the benefit of those injured players and not necessarily the plans that will be carried out.
At least that's what I'm hoping!
The season is practically over, unless we go on a 5 game winning streak (still stupidly dreaming) I'm more interested in what players we bring in and dispose of in the summer.
Roll on next season..
