Despite his season being over due to a broken metatarsal, Everton are hopeful of offering Gibson a contract extension, reports the Daily Mail.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez is trying to assure Gibson of his spot in the club despite his injury troubles in the past year. The defender still has 12 months remaining on his current contract.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Gibson is unlikely to play again this season after fracturing his fifth metatarsal during training last Friday, though he will not require surgery, manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday.

Martinez did not guarantee that Gibson would miss the rest of the season, but he surely wasn't optimistic about a quick return either. Given his relatively reduced role anyway, Gibson's absence isn't likely to affect many fantasy owners.

Gibson (groin) is not in the 18-man squad to face Southampton on Saturday.

Gibson only rejoined full team training Thursday and seemed like a long-shot to face the Saints. His next opportunity will come next Saturday against Swansea City.

Manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday that Gibson (groin) has not rejoined full squad training, but he still might be available for Saturday's match against Southampton.

Gibson has been bothered with injuries for much of the past two seasons, and even when he's fully fit, he's a marginal fantasy option in most formats.

Gibson continues to work on his fitness following a long period out with a knee injury. "Darron is working really well and is building some better fitness levels," manager Roberto Martinez said Tuesday. "We need to make sure after a long spell on the sidelines that all the work we are doing is allowing him to be fully fit."

Gibson had surgery on his torn ACL back in October 2013 and he still hasn't been able to play in a competitive match. Even when he does return to full fitness, his fantasy upside is limited.

Gibson (knee) continues to train with the first team, but he is unlikely to play in Sunday's season-finale against Hull City, the club's official web site reports.

Gibson's lone appearance this season came back on October 5 against Manchester City and he'll now look to come back at 100 percent next season.

Gibson (knee) has rejoined first-team training, although it is unclear if he will play in any of the remaining fixtures this season, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Gibson has made two appearances for Everton this season, one in the Capital One Cup and one Premier League game. He's been out for so long that it would be a bit surprising to see him thrust back in at this point of the season, although with Kevin Mirallas ruled out for the remaining fixtures, it's possible that Everton risk Gibson.

Gibson is close to a return to full training after undergoing surgery to repair a damaged cruciate ligament back in October, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Gibson had played just 27 minutes for Everton this season before getting injured in a World Cup qualifier. His return date is still unknown and it is likely he would have minimal fantasy value upon his return.
