Everton striker Saha out for rest of season

BY foxsports • April 1, 2011

Everton is likely to be without leading scorer Louis Saha for the rest of the season after the France striker had ankle surgery.

Saha scored 10 goals this season, including four in a 5-3 win over Blackpool, before he was hurt in a 2-1 win over Fulham on March 19 and had to be carried from the field.

Everton said Friday that the 32-year-old Saha subsequently had surgery and is set for a spell on the sidelines alongside midfielders Mikel Arteta and Marouane Fellaini.

Arteta has a hamstring problem and has been out since March 9, while Fellaini has an ankle injury.
