Everton defender Bryan Oviedo announces he is close to return on Instagram

How much better would Costa Rica have been at the World Cup, if Everton defender Bryan Oviedo had been available?

The left-sided defender was in fine form and looked to be a key player in Roberto Martinez’s Everton side before going down with a broken leg at Stevenage last January.

Oviedo missed a brilliant Costa Rica World Cup campaign but now looks likely to be fit for Everton’s 2014/2015 Premier League season.

Early on Tuesday morning, Oviedo uploaded a picture to Instagram of himself jumping to head a high ball.

Oviedo added the following message: “Cerca de volver – Near to returning”.

Great news for Everton!
