Michael Keane

Keane suffers fractured skull

Everton defender Michael Keane suffered a hairline fracture to his skull after colliding with Idirssa Gana Gueye in the Blues’ 2-2 draw away at Bournemouth yesterday.

The England international received immediate attention on the pitch and was taken to hospital where x-rays confirmed the fracture.

“Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes and support,” said Keane, in a statement shared on social media.

“I’m okay but suffered a small hairline fracture of the skull which will heal itself and means I won’t be able to have any head contact for three to four weeks.

“I will be back with my team and back on the pitch as soon as I can after that.

“I also want to say a huge thank you to the medical staff at Everton and Bournemouth as well as all those at Poole Hospital for their excellent treatment and care.”

Everton confirmed the fracture, releasing a statement on the official site saying, “The 25-year-old defender will be unable to engage in head contact for between three and four weeks, from which point he will be able to resume full training.”
