Everton midfielder Li Tie has returned to training after over eight months out with a broken shin.
The China international sustained the injury while playing for his country in January and it has been a long hard fight back to fitness.
The 26-year-old has now been told he can resume full training, but will only do so with the reserves for now.
Toffees physio Mick Rathbone says that he hopes Li Tie will be back in action for the reserves by the end of the month.
