Everton star Yakubu Aiyegbeni has told skysports.com he is already looking forward to next season.
The Nigerian international striker ruptured his Achilles in November, ending his season prematurely.
Yakubu has now revealed his rehabilitation is going well but admits he is sad not to be involved with the team as they battle for a UEFA Champions League spot.
"I am doing well at the moment, hopefully I will be back soon," he told skysports.com.
"I will visit a specialist in France to look at the problem, but I am hopeful to be fine very soon.
"It is sad I can't help the team, they are doing very well, and we have got a slight chance to be in the Champions League but to finish in the top five will be very good for us.
"Hopefully the final phase of my rehabilitation will be good, and next season we will fight for a top four finish."
