Spanish forward Sandro Ramirez, one of the biggest busts of the Ronald Koeman and Steve Walsh era, has finally been sold. Earlier this summer there had been some talk about Everton dissolving his contract, but that appears to have been resolved now.

The 25-year-old forward has joined La Liga outfit SD Huesca from Everton on a three year deal, with the actual transfer fee still unknown. Per the Echo, his transfer fee was waived so that the Spanish side could afford his £86,000 per week wages.

Sandro had been signed by the Toffees in 2017 for the paltry sum of £5.2m, thanks to a very low release clause placed on the player when he transferred from Barcelona the previous season. The 21 year old Spaniard scored 14 goals and assisted on 5 others in La Liga that season, and led the line for Spain at the U21 Euros along with Gerard Deulofeu.

However, after struggling mightily on Merseyside and scored just one competitive goal for the Blues. the forward was consistently sent out on a series of loans as the club continued to try getting a buyer for him. Sandro leaves the Blues having played a total of 16 times with one goal and two assists. Since that time, he’s had loan spells at Sevilla, Real Sociedad and Real Valladolid, with none of the clubs showing any interest in a permanent transfer.

Sandro has plenty of experience in La Liga having featured over a hundred times for over half a dozen sides in his young career, and should be able to help Huesca who sit in 15th place in the league after picking up four draws and a loss in their first five games of the season after gaining promotion to the top division last season.
