As the season nears an end, many of Everton’s out-on-loan contingent are playing for their futures - whether that be at Goodison Park or elsewhere.

Below, we see how they all got on.

The Youngsters

Henry Onyekuru - Galatasaray

No action for Galatasaray or Onyekuru this week.

Nikola Vlasic – CSKA Moscow

Scored the opener with his eighth goal of the season, but CSKA threw away a 2-0 lead to strugglers Ufa, which puts a dent in their hopes of securing Champions League football next year.

It will be interesting to see whether Marco Silva will welcome him back into the first team fold after an impressive loan spell, especially after the report this weekend.

Antonee Robinson – Wigan Athletic

Looked solid as he helped Wigan to a clean sheet in their goalless draw with Brentford.

Beni Baningime – Wigan Athletic

Still missing for Wigan. Not looking good for Beni, which makes this a strange loan choice for the Blues.

Callum Connolly – Bolton Wanderers

Started alongside Joe Williams in the middle of the park again and pounced on a rebound to score a priceless winner for Bolton in their 2-1 win over Queens Park Rangers.

Joe Williams – Bolton Wanderers

Instrumental in a rare win for Bolton.

Matthew Pennington – Ipswich Town

Picked up an ankle injury which ends his season early. Ipswich are rock-bottom of the Championship, but Pennington has been one of their better performers this season.

It’s very doubtful, though, that the 24-year-old has a future at Goodison Park. Will likely secure a permanent move to a Championship club in the summer.

Kieran Dowell – Sheffield United

Disappointing week for Dowell. After getting a start at home to Bristol City, he was hooked at half-time in a 3-2 defeat as the Blades fell out of the automatic promotion positions.

Mason Holgate – West Bromwich Albion

West Brom are flying right now, with Holgate playing a key role at right-back. He got another 90 minutes under his belt as his side beat Birmingham 3-2.

Barring a catastrophic collapse, the Baggies are nailed on for a play-off place, while it’s not completely impossible for them to still grab an automatic place if their winning run continues.

Antony Evans – Blackpool

A positive week after not getting too much action in a Blackpool shirt for Antony Evans. The 20-year-old grabbed his first assist in their 4-1 win over Bradford last week, and then kept his place at left-midfield in their 2-2 draw with Plymouth Argyle before being subbed off on 71 minutes.

Shayne Lavery - Falkirk FC

Got five minutes from the bench again for Falkirk in their goalless draw with Inverness. Disappointing loan spell for the Northern Irish under-21 international.

Joe Hilton – Marine

The 19-year-old goalkeeper has kept five clean sheets in 11 appearances for Marine but couldn’t prevent his side from losing 3-1 to South Shields.

The Deadwood

Ashley WilliamsStoke City

Yet another goalless draw for Stoke, but Williams yet again watched on from the bench.

Cuco Martina - Feyenoord

Played again as Feyenoord lost 3-2 to Utrecht.

Luke Garbutt – Oxford United

Completed a rare 90 minutes as Oxford beat Wycombe 2-1.

Shani Tarashaj - Grasshopper

Disappeared again.

Kevin Mirallas - Fiorentina

Played 85 minutes in Fiorentina’s 1-1 draw with Torino, but it’s looking doubtful the club will exercise their £7 million buy option on the Belgian winger.

Mo Besic - Middlesbrough

Has lost his place in the starting line-up at Boro but made an 18-minute appearance from the bench in their 1-0 defeat to league leaders, Norwich.

Yannick Bolasie - Anderlecht

Played the full game once again but Anderlecht were comfortably beaten 3-0 by Genk.

Sandro Ramirez – Real Sociedad

Continues to start for Sociedad but still yet to score. Was brought off on the hour mark in their 1-1 draw with Valladolid. The news that the Spanish side want to buy him this summer comes as a huge relief for the Blues.

Oumar Niasse – Cardiff City

Like Sandro, still no goals for Niasse at Cardiff, although he did play 85 minutes in Cardiff’s harsh 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.
