Roberto Martinez has had the Goodison Park outfit playing some football this season but they have lacked consistent results and find themselves at the 11th place with just 10 games to go in the Barclays Premier League this season.

They were handed a blow earlier when it was revealed that Ireland and Everton U-21 forward suffered a severe leg break while training for the club.

Dubliner Byrne has represented Ireland at every underage level from U15 up. He began his club career in Manchester United’s youth setup.

He failed to play for the first team, but a loan spell with Carlisle United gave the Dubliner his first taste of senior football. He joined Everton in 2014.

The 20-year old scored in the Blues’ second string’s win over Southampton last month and was producing the best form of his Everton career.

Under-21s coach David Unsworth said: “The boys are all gutted for Sam because they are a close group and he’s a popular member of the squad.

“We will give him all the support he needs and I look forward to having him back amongst us as soon as possible.”

He is not out with an injury he picked up that was described as ‘freak’ and finds himself out for the rest of the season.

He has undergone an operation and will start his rehab in the next few weeks.

The Dubliner has played twice for Ireland’s Under-21’s team, making his debut in 2014.

Martinez will not be happy with this as the 20-year old was just blossoming into a player of Premier League caliber.

Though he has ended his season, Martinez he will hope that he will be fresh and back in time for the start of the next season.

After the stunning come-back from West Ham that downed the Toffees, they will travel to the Stadium of Light next weekend.
