Spotted: 20-year-old attacker arrives at Everton
Anderlecht loanee Henry Onyekuru has returned to the Everton training facility to deal with an injury that cut short his loan spell with the Belgian side.
A knee issue had set back his progression which is unfortunate given the strides he was making under the management of Hein Vanhaezebrouck.
On Saturday the player Tweeted an update after arriving back at Finch Farm:
Back at @Everton a little earlier than expected, I am so grateful for the facilities and the medical team working hard to get me back playing ASAP! The Lord is my strength ???????? pic.twitter.com/uxfdiEp54d

The forward, signed from KAS Eupen for a fee believed to be in the region of £7million was straightaway loaned out to the Juliper Pro League side in Belgium where he made a great impression from the off.
Onyekuru bagged nine goals in 25 appearances for the Belgian league champions with whom he also gained Champions League experience, playing against Bayern Munich and Celtic.
Only last month Anderlecht released a statement on Sky Sports that the young attacker would be out for the foresseable future to ensure his comeback would be a successful one.
Everton have been struggling going forward this season and have faced all-round criticism for their lack of firepower and creativity – the youth and exuberance that their Nigerian summer signing could have offered will undoubtedly be a miss.
