Cahill vows to end nightmare

Everton and Australia midfielder Tim Cahill flew into Sydney on Wednesday morning ahead of surgery on his recurring metatarsal injury, claiming the procedure would "fix the problem for good".

The Australia international has succumbed to the injury on three separate occasions during the past 14 months to limit his appearances for club and country.

On each occasion the 28-year-old has suffered damage to the same area, the fifth metatarsal in his left foot.

He is expected to undergo surgery in the next 10 days with a view to being fully fit for the start of the next Barclays Premier League season.

"The aim is to fix the problem for good," Cahill told the Gold Coast Bulletin.

"I've missed a lot of football and I'm determined to do whatever it takes to prevent another recurrence.
