Jack Rodwell is set to see a nerve specialist due to his repeated hamstring injuries as the backroom staff look to get him back to fitness.
Our Jack has been on the sidelines for long spells this term, with four separate setbacks with his hamstrings this season. Impacting on his form, progress and £20m valuation.
Steve Round has confirmed that everything is being done to remedy Jack's problems.
Steve Round said: 'I am speaking much more on behalf of David Moyes these days - (he didn't really)'
'We think it is something to do with the nervous system and are exploring that avenue.'
'We owe it to him to make sure that we are doing the right thing and it maybe that a summer's rest or an injection into a nerve to get the inflammation down helps. He is working really hard to strengthen his hamstring, and we won't finish him for the season.'
'We have to keep him going, we have to try and re-strengthen and make sure that he is doing all the right things to prevent. Jack seems okay, he seems quite strong and will overcome that. It is just a case of easing him off at the minute and easing him back.'
'Once he gets into the team and gets a run, he will improve. Jack is at the stage where he needs to be a regular. This has set him back a little bit but I have confidence he is going to be a top player.'
Definitely a frustrating season for Our Jack, just when we hoped he would kick on to become a first team regular for Everton and England, it has not happened.
