Everton manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Costa Rica international Bryan Oviedo will not play again this season.

The 25-year-old will miss the remaining four games of the season after fracturing a metatarsal in his right foot during training.

Oviedo had just recovered from a hamstring strain and has only played 11 times this season. He now looks set to miss the Gold Cup, which takes place in Philadelphia in July, after being forced to sit out last summer’s World Cup after suffering a double leg fracture in January 2014.

He was trying to get on the ball and his ankle rolled in a very awkward position.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez said: “He’s fractured his fifth metatarsal.

“He was in a great moment of form and looking forward to getting back into the squad and finishing the season playing.

“It was a very unfortunate action on his own and he is going to be out for the rest of the season. He was trying to get on the ball and his ankle rolled in a very awkward position.”

Everton visit an Aston Villa side on Saturday that is 7.50 to be relegated this season and 3.50 to beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final on 30th May.

Everton are available at 11.00 to beat Tim Sherwood’s team 2-1, with Romelu Lukaku 2.62 to score at any time.
