Having spent much of January being Sevilla’s back-up option, Sandro Ramirez finally got his chance on Wednesday after the Spanish club lost out on Michy Bathsuayi to Borussia Dortmund.
Keen to get his career back on track, it was reported for months that Sandro was edging towards the Everton exit.
In December there were countless Spanish reports that Valencia would be his destination, but the deal, even on loan, was deemed too expensive for a back-up player.
Valencia instead signed Luciano Vietto on loan from Atletico Madrid, who scored a hat-trick on his debut, and has since made four appearances totalling around 160 minutes.
Sandro has now been unveiled by Sevilla and was asked a series of questions at his presentation.
On the process to join the club, the striker was quoted by Estadio Deportivo as saying: “I thank the president, Oscar, and the club for the effort. It was a tough negotiation, Everton has resisted until the end, that is secondary, now I am where I wanted to be, where the body asked me to be, I do not have the World Cup in mind, I want to work and do what I do best. Score goals.”
Impressive last season at Malaga, several La Liga clubs wanted to sign Sandro but he chose the Everton route.
It quickly became clear the move wasn’t working out, and on his Premier League experience, Sandro explained: “England is very different, the life is different, people are different, but now I come to a big city and a great club.”
That sounds like Sandro’s time in England is done.
