Three players Everton should loan out in January

Oumar Niasse, Kieran Dowell and Leandro Rodriguez should leave, but for differing reasons.

Everton’s good early start in the Premier League has been forgotten lately after a blip in form.

The club will no doubt be looking to make changes in January, including sending some players out from the club.

So who could they send out on loan in the New Year?

Here are three options…

The flop signing of last January will surely be moved on in the winter. He is not going to play under Ronald Koeman but Everton will struggle to get a fee they deem worthy of selling the player considering his lack of action.

A loan move away is looking on the cards for the Senegal international.

Kieran Dowell

The 19-year-old is a top talent at Goodison Park but a first-team birth seems unlikely at present.

The creative midfielder would make a big impact at many a Championship club and Everton must surely be considering sending him out on loan after the turn of the year.

Another forgotten Roberto Martinez signing. He spent time on loan at Brentford last term and was not offered a squad number at Goodison Park for this season.

A temporary, or perhaps permanent, departure seems on the cards.
