Everton have allowed Sandro Ramirez return to Spain as the striker will join Sevilla on loan until the end of the season.

The Merseyside club's former manager Ronald Koeman signed the 22-year-old from Malaga in the last summer transfer window. He impressed for the Spanish outfit last season, scoring 16 goals in 32 appearances.

However, Sandro has failed to replicate his last season form for Everton. Following Koeman's sacking, he has failed to make his way into new manager Sam Allarydce's plans at Goodison Park.

This resulted in the former England and Crystal Palace manager sanction Sandro's loan move to Sevilla. His transfer is subjected to medical.

A statement on Everton's official website read, "Sandro Ramirez is to join Sevilla on loan for the rest of the season, subject to a medical."

Meanwhile, Everton face Leicester City in the Premier League clash on Wednesday evening. Allardyce has expressed his unhappiness after his side were forced to play a fixture on the deadline day of the January transfer window.

"I would expect that my focus is not on the transfer window because unfortunately yet again the Premier League have decided to play a game right on the transfer window deadline," Allardyce explained.

"Clearly at the AGM they didn't think it was worth not doing it this time round, on the back of playing the whole of the Christmas period and playing five games in 15 or 16 days.

"I can pick a team today [Monday], and tomorrow I could pick up the paper and see a player is going to be sold before the window shuts. How is that player going to approach that game against Leicester that's very important to us? We all suffer that."
