IRELAND INTERNATIONAL DARRON Gibson is set to miss up to three weeks of Premier League action after suffering a thigh strain, Everton’s official website has confirmed.

The midfielder picked up the injury in the side’s recent 2-0 loss to West Brom, and speaking to reporters earlier today, Everton manager David Moyes said:

“He’s got a thigh strain which we think would initially keep him out for four to five weeks. Obviously he’s missed two weeks already, so hopefully he’s not too far away.”

Gibson has impressed since signing for Everton in last season’s January transfer window, and Moyes added:

“It is a concern for me because Darron has been very consistent and he’s been very good. It’s a blow and it leaves us a bit short in that area but we’ll have to find ways of getting around it.”

Moreover, it is not the first time the player has been in the news of late, as he withdrew from the Ireland squad earlier this month, with manager Giovanni Trapattoni claiming he “doesn’t feel ready to return to the squad for this fixture after the disappointment of Euro 2012″.
