Kevin Mirallas reportedly returns to training following a hamstring injury but won't be risked in Everton's match against Southampton on Monday.

Everton forward Kevin Mirallas has reportedly stepped up his recovery from a hamstring injury after returning to training.

The Belgium international has been struggling with injury since suffering a setback in his hamstring, which originally kept him out of action in early December.

It is understood that Mirallas has taken part in training sessions but Everton boss David Moyes is unlikely to risk him against Southampton on Monday, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Toffees currently sit fifth in the Premier League table.
