Real Valladolid’s sporting director Miguel Ángel Gómez has not ruled a permanent move for Everton Sandro Ramírez this summer.

Sandro has been on loan with the Spanish club since the summer, his third loan spell away from Goodison Park since his arrival in 2017.

As was the case with Sevilla and Real Sociedad, he has struggled to find his best form at Valladolid, managing just for goals and one assist in 21 games so far.

That, though, is a considerable improvement fort he Spaniard, who had gone over a year without a goal during his time at Everton.

He is likely to be on the long list of players the Blues are keen to move on this summer, namely because of his relatively high wage packet.

A permanent switch to Valladolid would be ideal for all parties, and Gómez is not ruling it out at this point.

“Sandro has a contract with Everton, and we have to find a way around that,“ he told Radio Marca Valladolid, relayed by Pucela Fichajes.

“(We have to know) if he is comfortable here or not and wants to go on, then we can look at the characteristics of that operation and whether or not we can accept them.”

It seems, though, that if a permanent move is to happen, Everton will have to go out of their way to make it so.

Pucela claim his wage packet will have to be ‘lowered considerably’ and that the Blues will need to make ‘a big effort’ to facilitate his arrival.

That is something they are likely to be happy to do, with Marcel Brands and co likely to be more happy to get him off the books than bring him back when there is no place for him. a
