Gbamin, Holgate, Mykolenko not at Everton training camp

Wantaway midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin and defenders Mason Holgate and Vitalii Mykolenkohave not travelled with Everton's squad for a pre-season training camp in Switzerland.

In May, Gbamin's agent said the player did not want to return to the club after enduring a nightmare four-year spell decimated by serious injuries which has restricted the 27-year-old to just eight appearances.

The Ivory Coast international, whose contract expires next summer, has had unsuccessful loan spells at CSKA Moscow and, last season, at Trabzonspor.

Holgate, who made only four appearances following Sean Dyche's arrival as manager at the end of January - with one of his two starts ending in a red card - was pictured training with the squad when they returned last week.

Mykolenko missed the final three games of the season with a muscle injury but featured in three matches for Ukraine last month.

Everton play their first friendly against Stade Nyonnais on Friday.
