Yannick Bolasie to return to action before the end of 2018
Bolasie has been on the sidelines since December after he damaged his anterior cruciate ligament in the 1-1 draw at home to Manchester United.
The DR Congo winger was ruled out for the rest of the season after scans showed he ruptured his ACL, but the club are yet to announce a return date.
Bolasie, who cost Everton £25million last summer, believes he is in a good place and predicts he'll be back before before the turn of 2018.

"I'm seeing the light right now," Bolasie told Sky Sports. "I'm in a good place with rehab.
"I can't actually put any time schedule down but I'm pretty confident that I'll be back before 2017 ends. That's for sure."
Bolasie's team-mate Seamus Coleman has also picked up a serious injury, having suffered a double leg break on international duty with Republic of Ireland on Friday.
And the 27-year-old is backing Coleman to come back even stronger.

On Coleman's injury, Bolasie added: "At the moment everyone is just showing great support.
"We know what the club's like at Everton, it's a family club.
"The club are being supportive with me right now; the manager, the staff. So I'm sure it's going to the the same outcome for him.
"He's a strong character so I can see him coming back better."
