Everton boss Marco Silva says that Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina will be able to work with the first team properly after the international break.
Both arrived from Barcelona with minor knocks and Silva says it will take another 3 and a half weeks before they can be expected to play.
He added that Lucas Digne and Bernard could be in contention for a place in the team for the visit of Rotherham in the League Cup next week.
“It looks maybe after the international break they can start working with us,” he said.
“We will see next week how they are and after I can give a different update but it is possible after the break.
“Lucas [Digne] is working with us, he had a small problem but everything is OK now, Bernard is improving his condition and doing well and tomorrow I will take a decision.
“Schneiderlin will be ready to start to work with us Monday or Tuesday.
“It is not good news for us because he is started the season well, winning confidence is important for him, but it is only a small issue.”
