Aaron Lennon returns to Everton training after illness

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 Mayunder the Mental Health Act over concerns for his welfare.

He was taken to hospital “for assessment” but was expected to  make a full recoveryin the short term.

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  galleryposted by the club showing the squad’s return to the training complex.

Defender Coleman has been out with a double fracture of his right leg,which he suffered playing for the Republic of Ireland in a World Cup qualifier against Wales in March.

Winger Bolasie injured his right kneeduring the Toffees’ 1-1 draw with Manchester United in December last year.

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.

Everton have not commented on the latest developments but Lennon was pictured smiling as players were assessed at the club’s Finch Farm training ground.

Lennon, a former Leeds and Tottenham player, last played for Ronald Koeman’s side in February.
