Since we reported 2 weeks ago that Jarrad Branthwaite was unable to play for his loan club, Blackburn Rovers, it has now been decided that he should have surgery on his injured ankle.
Branthwaite, like many of Everton's players who have gone out on loan this season, seems to have suffered a mixed time away from the club. He started 9 consecutive matches following his arrival at Ewood Park but then didn't feature in any of the next 9 before being recalled to the starting line-up for the win over Derby County.
After Branthwaite sustained the injury in training with Blackburn Rovers last month, it has ruled him out of Rovers' final four fixtures. He has since returned to Everton and has had an operation today to repair the ankle ligament damage before beginning his rehabilitation.
It remains to be seen whether he recovers sufficiently over the summer to be considered as part of Carlo Ancelotti's senior squad for next season, or whether he will be shipped out on loan again, with 2 years remaining on his Everton contract.
