According to a report from The Sun on Sunday (4/8; page 67), Everton are willing to loan Mo Besic out in the final days of the transfer window, and could even consider letting him go permanently on the cheap.

Besic's future has appeared to lie away from Goodison Park for some time now. The 26-year-old has not played for the Toffees since December 2017, and spent the last 18 months on loan with Middlesbrough in the Championship.

 

He did well at the Riverside Stadium, but few expected him to get another chance on Merseyside as Marco Silva prepares for his second season at Everton.

And The Sun on Sunday (4/8; page 67) reports that the Toffees are stepping up their efforts to offload the Bosnia-Herzegovina international, with the club willing to let him go on the cheap or loan him out once again.

Marco Silva of FC Everton looks on during the Opel Cup 2019 match between 1. FSV Mainz 05 and FC Everton at Opel Arena on July 27, 2019 in Mainz, Germany.

The report notes that his wages will make a return to Boro unlikely - along with the fact that Tony Pulis has now moved on. But it would not be a surprise if there were some other Championship sides registering an interest.

He could be a very shrewd addition now that Everton are reportedly willing to consider letting him go for a low figure. And with time in the transfer window running out, his availability will surely appeal to a number of sides who are looking to add a combative midfielder to their ranks before the deadline passes.
