Everton have been handed a boost with the news that Joseph Yobo could return to action before the end of the month.
Yobo has been on the sidelines since 22nd December after picking up a hamstring problem in the 0-0 draw with Chelsea.
The Nigerian is making good progress with the injury and Toffees boss David Moyes expects him to return to the fold in the near future.
"I do not think that Yobo will be too far away but Louis Saha is probably four or five weeks away."
Moyes also revealed injured striker James Vaughan could return before the end of the season.
The young forward is currently recovering from knee surgery and has not featured since the win at Middlesbrough in November.
Vaughan was expected to be ruled out for the remainder of the campaign, but Moyes believes he could be back for the final few weeks of the season.
"We may well get Vaughan back before the end of the season now," added Moyes.
