Aaron Lennon smiles on his return to training at Everton
Aaron Lennon has returned to Everton for pre-season training.
The former England winger was among the players pictured as the club posted a gallery of photographs of the squad returning to work after the summer break.
Lennon, 30, was detained under the Mental Health Act in May. A statement from the club at the time said the player was "receiving care and treatment for a stress-related illness".
Everton have not commented on the latest developments but Lennon was pictured smiling as players were assessed at the club's Finch Farm training ground.
Lennon, a former Leeds and Tottenham player, last played for Ronald Koeman's side in February.
