Everton's Premier League football striker Louis Saha is likely to be sidelined for the rest of the season after ankle surgery.

The France forward injured his ankle after falling awkwardly in the 2-1 Premier League home win over Fulham on March the 19th.

He is the club's top scorer this season with 10 goals, and had recently hit a rich vein of form with nine this year.

Everton, who are eighth in the standings with 40 points from 30 games, are also without Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta (hamstring) and Belgium playmaker Marouane Fellaini (ankle).
