Everton handed fresh fitness boost ahead of Arsenal game as Jack Harrison takes part in training

Everton boss Sean Dyche has been handed a fitness boost as summer signing Jack Harrison was pictured taking part in training ahead of the visit of Arsenal.

Harrison arrived from Leeds United on a season-long loan on 14 August carrying a hip injury that has kept him out of action.

No timeframe was given for the winger’s return to action, other than it would be after the September international break.

Everton are back in Premier League action on Sunday [17 September] when Arsenal make the trip to Goodison Park.

It is not yet known if Harrison will be considered for squad selection for that match, but the 26-year-old does at least appear to be closing in on a return.

Everton posted images on their official website on Thursday [14 September] of Harrison training alongside his new team-mates.

Harrison posed for a photo alongside full-back Ashley Young, and was also snapped taking part in a training exercise with Ben Godfrey.

If the former Manchester City player is not ready for the match with Arsenal, there are plenty more games coming up to belatedly make his debut.

Everton host Brentford and Luton Town in the Premier League before the end of the month, either side of an EFL Cup tie away at Aston Villa.

Villa pulled out of the running to sign Harrison when it emerged he was going to spend a period of time on the sidelines [Sky Sports], so it seems almost destined that fixture will be circled for his Everton bow.
