Everton - Everton winger Yannick Bolasie could be on the treatment table until 2018 after requiring a second operation on a knee injury.

Bolasie suffered ligament damage during Everton’s 1-1 draw against Manchester United last month after only arriving at Goodison Park in a £28million deal during the summer.

The 27-year-old immediately underwent knee surgery, but he is now due to have a second operation.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman admits that could see the former Crystal Palace winger sidelined for a long-term period which could stretch to 12 months.

Koeman said: "It is a long-term injury 10, 11, 12 months. He will come back, he has a strong mentality."

The Congolese international shortly after suffering the injury took to social media to assure fans that he would be back to his best after the injury.

However, Everton are reportedly on the verge of adding an attacking option in the January transfer window with the signing of Charlton teenager Ademola Lookman.

The England Under-20 international has made just 45 first-team appearances for Charlton, but is due to complete a £10m move to Merseyside.
