Spotted! Darron Gibson and Everton mates train at Matt Macklin's gym in Marbella

We wouldn’t fancy trading Marbella for Malahide either, Darron.

DARRON GIBSON DIDN’T fancy answering Ireland’s call when Giovanni Trapattoni tried to draft him in as a late addition for tonight’s friendly against Poland.

Instead the midfielder joined his Everton team-mates for a training camp in Marbella, which included a trip to Matthew Macklin’s MGM gym for a workout.

Gibson, who declined the Ireland call-up as he is only returning from injury, and the Toffees stars were put through their paces by Macklin’s brother Seamus on Monday.

“Would have to say [Sylvain Distin] hits the hardest out of all the Everton lads,” Macklin tweeted.

Gibson works out.

Macklin and Distin.

Give us a smile there, Gibbo.
