On their website, Everton said he will "return to USM Finch Farm to be assessed by the club's medical team."

The 28-year-old has played every minute of Everton's Premier League campaign so far, as they have had an impressive start under Rafael Benitez.

Highlights of the UEFA Nations League semi-final between Belgium and France

Everton are fifth in the table after seven games, but tied on 14 points with Manchester City and Manchester United who are in third and fourth.

However, Digne's availability for their next game - when they host ninth-place West Ham on Sunday, October 17 - is unclear after he was suffering "muscle pain" in training on Tuesday and missed out on France's Nations League match on Thursday.
