SEAMUS COLEMAN is back in training with Everton ten months after breaking his leg playing for Ireland. Toffees boss Sam Allardyce confirmed the Ireland captain has made significant progress in his recovery from the horror leg break he suffered in the World Cup qualifier against Wales last March. Allardyce said: “Seamus Coleman is due back. He has started training.” There’s is no timetable yet for the 29-year-old’s return to match action as the Everton boss gave no further update on his recovery. Allardyce said last month that Coleman was ‘way off’ a return to the field and said ‘that’s one we would like to get back.’ Fellow Ireland star James McCarthy has already made an impression on his new boss as he made an impressive return from injury against last month. McCarthy was handed his first Premier League start in 11 months against Bournemouth and was described by Allardyce as ‘the shining light’ in his side’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester United two days later. Ireland boss Martin O’Neill will be pleased with the progression of two key players however it is unclear if O’Neill will be in the position for much longer. Stoke City are set to make an offer to make O’Neill their new manager after top target Gary Rowett signed a contract extension with Derby County.
