Yerry Mina remains the only senior Everton centre-back to not be given any game time under Sean Dyche after he replaced Frank Lampard at the helm.
It’s been over a month since he’s taken charge of the club and while there has been chopping and changing, the Colombian is yet to be given even a single minute to prove his worth.
Dyche has made calls to drop Conor Coady, give Michael Keane an unlikely return and also play Ben Godfrey at left-back, but has yet to give Mina a spot in the team.
The 28-year-old has been facing an uncertain future at the club for over a year as there have always been issues with his fitness.
However, in the past, whenever he’s been fit, he’s either been a regular starter or someone who’s going to play every other game for the Toffees.
This time, though, he has been fit enough to make the matchday squads, but it’s like Dyche is sending a clear message that he does not want Mina here.

It was revealed in December that the club were not going to make any efforts in order to get the defender to renew his contract at the club.
Under Dyche, it doesn’t look like that stance is going to change and with Mina’s deal running out at the end of the season, we won’t be surprised if he stops making the matchday squads as well.
Unless there’s a major injury crisis, we do not see him coming back to the fold and while it may be a slightly unpopular call, it’s the manager showing everyone who’s boss and players that don’t have the right attitude may not be at Everton too long.
