Jack Rodwell is likely to miss the rest of the season and the European Championship after a recurrence of the hamstring injury that has plagued his season.
The Everton midfielder suffered his sixth hamstring injury of the season in training on Saturday and will be treated in Germany by the renowned Bayern Munich club doctor, Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt.
Rodwell was selected by Fabio Capello for both of England's friendlies in November but the Everton manager, David Moyes, says he should concentrate on being ready for the start of next season, in August. "We are trying to see when he can go for treatment. I would advise him to concentrate on next season because Jack has missed six months with hamstring injuries."
