Aaron Lennon returns to Everton for pre-season training

HE'S BACK: Aaron Lennon

EVERTON WINGER Aaron Lennon is among the players to return to the Premier League club for pre-season preparations.

The 30-year-old was detained by police in May under the Mental Health Act over concerns for his welfare and was taken to hospital "for assessment" but was expected to make a full recovery in the short term. A statement from the club at the time said the player was "receiving care and treatment for a stress-related illness".

Long-term injury absentees Seamus Coleman and Yannick Bolasie were also at the Finch Farm training ground.

All three players were part of a photo gallery posted by the club showing the squad's return to the training complex.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman said in January that Bolaise, who has had surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament, could be out for up to a year.
