MAX Aarons will be available for selection for Cherries this weekend when they host Everton according to boss Andoni Iraola.

Cherries defender Aarons has been absent with a hamstring issue since January, his second injury of the campaign after joining from Norwich City in the summer.

However, the right-back will be fit for selection on Saturday (3pm) when Cherries welcome Everton to Vitality Stadium.

Whilst there had been some hope that fellow defender Marcos Senesi could recover from a hamstring issue of his own in time for the game, Iraola ruled the Argentine out.

Luis Sinisterra is yet another suffering a hamstring strain, picking up the injury whilst on international duty with Colombia.

Lloyd Kelly remains a doubt, but could still feature.

Iraola shared: “I think we have bad news with Sini (Luis Sinisterra).

“Obviously he's injured, he's out.

“Marcos (Senesi), continues out.

“He hasn't been able to train with the group still.

“Lloyd Kelly has started training with the group this week.

“Max, he is normal. He's available and will be in the squad.

“We continue with Ryan Fredericks out, and, we have to recheck the ones who arrived today, they've come from international duty.

“Especially the ones who started the second game. Meps (Chris Mepham), Ryan Christie, Antoine Semenyo.

“Today was still a recovery day for them.

“And they will train tomorrow, we will see how they are, to take the decision for the weekend.”


Pressed for a further update on Kelly, Iraola responded: “He's training with the group. He's started training.

“But it's difficult for me to say today if he has a place in the squad, probably he has a chance.

“But it will depend also in other situations.”
