Valladolid coach Sergio González has admitted they will have to wait until ‘the last minute’ to discover if Everton will grant an extension to Sandro Ramírez’s loan deal.

The Spanish striker has been on loan with the La Liga side since the summer after it was once again made clear there was no place for him at Goodison Park.

He has struggled to rediscover his best form once again, managing just four goals and one assist in 22 games this season.

Despite those underwhelming numbers Valladolid have made it clear they would be open to a permanent deal, but only after finalising an extension to his current loan spell.

That is set to expire tomorrow, with it reported last week that they were yet to find an agreement with Everton over the terms of the extension.

A deal will have to be agreed today if he is to stay and González admits negotiations could go all the way up to the last minute.

“All the loaned are at our disposal from July 1 with the exception of Sandro,” he said in a press conference, relayed by Jornada Perfecta.

“With him, we have to wait until the last minute to see how it is solved.

“I know they are working on it because we want him to be with us, but Everton is the one who decides.”
