Sevilla have completed the signing of Sandro Ramirez from Everton on a loan deal for the remainder of the season.
The 22-year-old former Barcelona winger arrived in Liverpool last summer, completing a switch from Malaga, where he impressed last season.
Linking up with Ronald Koeman at Everton, the Spaniard was expected to be a success at Goodison Park but the Dutch coach failed to give him ample playing time before he was sacked following a poor run of results.
Sam Allardyce’s arrival has not seen Ramirez’s chances of playing, improve and a January move has been pursued by himself and his representatives.
Everton, who paid £5m to Andalusian side Malaga have now allowed him to join Sevilla on a six month loan deal.
The deal, which was confirmed by both clubs on Tuesday afternoon, features the option to make the move permanent, with a figure set at £7.5m, according to reports.
Sandro, who netted an impressive 14 goals in 28 league games last season in La Liga, will give Vincenzo Montella a fresh option in attack, joining the likes of Wissam Ben Yedder and Luis Muriel in competition to start.
Montella’s Sevilla face Leganes in the Copa del Rey semi-final this evening after knocking out Atletico Madrid last week.
