Injury news! Rodwell out for 3 years

Not open for further replies.


Player Valuation: £70m
Everton midfielder and England hopeful Jack Rodwell has been ruled out for up to three months with damaged ankle ligaments.

The £25million-rated teenager injured the ankle in a challenge by Stephen Warnock as Everton lost 1-0 at Aston Villa a week last Sunday, but the club could not get a definitive prognosis until yesterday due to swelling of the joint.

The news will be a blow to manager David Moyes and England manager Fabio Capello, who was considering calling up the 19-year-old ahead of next month’s European qualifier against Montenegro.

Yet the verdict is better than Everton first feared, having lost Marouane Fellaini for five months to a similar injury last season.

Rodwell signed a five-year deal in the summer amid interest from Manchester United, who face Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Still no confirmation of this on the OS... how willing are we to trust the source?

I don't see why they'd make [Poor language removed] like this up, but with the transfer window closed they have to do something. The OS is never exactly up with play either though.


no balls, no everton shirt,
hope he isnt out for more than a few weeks, need him fit if only to keep the others on there toes
