Neither player has featured in the Toffees' opening two Premier League games, with striker Yakubu a reported West Ham target and defender Yobo linked with a Celtic move.

However, Round has revealed the pair's absence is down to them improving their fitness following their late return from the World Cup this summer.

The assistant boss says Yobo could run out against Huddersfield in Carling Cup action on Wednesday, and expects both players to play a key role at Goodison Park this term.

"They came back from the World Cup a little bit later and have taken a bit of time to get fitter again," Round told Everton's official website.

"Joe is in the squad tomorrow and Yak would have been but he picked up a whack in training and is out.

"They are both in contention and will hopefully play a big part in us having a good season."
