Everton defender Yerry Mina is still nursing a foot injury and will not be fit for their clash with West Ham United on Sunday, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Columbian defender is yet to start training with the Toffees since his big money move from Barcelona, but was targeting a return to fitness after the international break.

This weekend’s game has come too soon for Mina though, as Everton will be without him for the visit of the Hammers.

After an impressive World Cup, helping Columbia to the quarter-finals with three goals in three games, the 23-year-old arrived at Goodison Park with plenty of potential.

Mina is yet to start his Everton career though, and Marco Silva is now facing a number of injury woes ahead of the return of the Premier League this weekend.

Seamus Coleman picked up a stress fracture in his foot representing the Republic of Ireland, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin also picking up a knock for England under 21s.

Everton are also hoping Theo Walcott can win his race against time, as he will be assessed after picking up a rib injury prior to the international break.

Joining the injury list though is Idrissa Gueye, Bernard, Phil Jagielka, Michael Keane and Andre Gomes who are all expected to be unavailable on Sunday.

Everton’s start to the season under Silva has been frustrating, picking up their only win in the opening four fixtures against Southampton.

Wolves, Bournemouth and Huddersfield have all held the Toffees to a draw in their other three outings, but they will be hoping a win is on the horizon when they face basement club West Ham on Sunday.
