Signed in the summer, Everton should consider letting Sandro leave already

Everton's approach to the summer transfer market has been described by some as 'scattergun', reflecting on their lack of success so far.

One of the players who has failed to produce is attacker Sandro, who was tipped before the season as one of the bargain buys of the summer.

This season his record is not good, he has played 11 games, and scored only once, a consolation in a 5-1 home demolition by Atalanta.

Spanish newspaper AS report an exit is possible already, with Valencia keen on a loan deal.

Begrudgingly, this is a move Everton should sanction if there is no immediate uptick in his performance under Sam Allardyce.

Ronald Koeman and David Unsworth both struggled to get the best out of him, and Sandro is not the prototypical Allardyce player either, in terms of physique.

His 14 goals on loan for Malaga last season showed what he is capable of, and Everton should not give up on him altogether.

Everton should allow Sandro to head back to Spain temporarily, and re-discover his form and confidence.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      It would be a risk for his Everton prospects long term, but next summer Allardyce may not be there, and Sandro will get a fresh start.
