Sandro Ramirez is said to be close to leaving Everton to join Real Sociedad on loan, as covered by ESPN FC on Wednesday afternoon.
Sandro moved to Everton from Malaga last summer, but struggled in the first half of last season before joining Sevilla on loan for the second half of the 2018-19 campaign.
The former Barcelona youngster has not been involved in the Premier League for Everton this season amid talk that he will be moving on.
However, 5ft 9in ace Sandro was named in the starting XI for Everton’s EFL Cup clash with Rotherham United on Wednesday night, which was a bit confusing.
Despite his presence in the League Cup, it is understood that Sandro will move on before the European transfer window closes at the end of August.
And the deal will be a loan move with the view to a permanent transfer.
The Everton fans have been reacting to the rumoured exit – and Sandro’s selection against Rotherham – on social media, and a selection can be seen below:
Lookman “rotting in the reserves” and Sandro who is leaving tomorrow on loan is playing for EFC. All a bit odd.

So with Sandro now going are the only wingers we have:

We are no worse off at all without him.

Sigurdsson, Dowell, Davies – Who is the DM?
Sandro transfer virtually final – Why is he playing?
Where is Lookman and why isn’t he playing if his transfer is about to happen?
Where is Bernard?
Davies captain?#EFC pic.twitter.com/zX4a0ibgoU

Very odd team. Very #efc if this backfires. Sandro? Really?

Bit strange Sandro starting if hes supposedly gone tomorrow. Unless Lookman is gone instead, no sign of him again.
