Sandro Ramirez signed for Everton in the summer of 2017 when then-manager Ronald Koeman unleashed a spending spree.
The Spaniard was recruited in the hope of filling in the gap left behind by Romelu Lukaku.
However, Ramirez has failed to live up to expectation as he has made just 16 appearances, scoring one goal and created two assists.
Under new manager Marco Silva it was unclear if the forward would have a future.
The 23-year-old appeared in a handful of pre-season friendlies, and on Wednesday night he was part of the squad that earned a 3-1 win over Rotherham United in the EFL Cup.
However, it has now been confirmed that Ramirez will not be part of the club’s plans this season as he will spend the campaign on loan at Spanish side Real Sociedad.

Ramirez is well-versed in Spanish football having played for Malaga and Barcelona, where he came through the club’s academy.
Everton fans have been preparing for Ramirez’s exit for some time, and after it was officially confirmed, the supporters posted their views on Twitter.
Should have kept him, but good luck Sandro

Terrible choice!! We need to keep him

Good luck, but all these fans saying terrible decision just because he had a half decent performance last night!! I’m sorry but like klassen the lad just isn’t good enough to cut it at this level of football

Think a move to a premier league club would of been better for us.

Why play him if he was going? Should have given someone else a go. Pointless appearance. I would wish him luck but I don’t think he needs it. He earns 100k a week!

Would really have liked to see him given the chance to prove himself in the prem with us, he clearly has the talent!! Good luck sandro 👍🏻

I am quite sad as Sandro played a decisive part in our win last night and I believe he has so much potential which Everton have failed to expose. I believe he would have become a valuable squad member playing the style of football Marco expects of his players. Good luck Sandro.

He’s had his chance he’s not good enough if working hard is a quality then I would be playing.
