Everton have announced that Bryan Oviedo has successfully undergone an operation on his double broken leg, Sky Sports has reported.

Oviedo fractured the tibula and fibula of his left leg in Everton’s 4-0 FA Cup win over Stevenage on Saturday, with Danny Donachie, Everton’s head of medical services, revealing the nature of the injury meant the operation had to wait until after the weekend.

“Bryan's surgery was a big success and he is in a comfortable and stable condition,” Donachie told the official Everton website.

“He fractured his tibia and his fibula and they were displaced, so we weren't able to put them back into place until Monday. He had surgery last night when a rod was put through his tibia, which means he will come back stronger than before.

“It was a clean break and that means that there are no pieces of bone. Sometimes when there are small fragments of bone in the area, it can be difficult to deal with. But these are clean breaks, so they will put the bones back into position and it will heal well from there. We will be working hard to get him back as quickly as we can.”

Oviedo moved to Goodison Park in 2012, signing from Danish side Copenhagen. This season he scored the winning goal against Manchester United at Old Trafford, one of two goals in 13 games for the 23-year-old.
