Sandro Ramirez’s loan spell at Real Valladolid could hardly have gone worse given his ongoing goal drought and injury woes in August, but the 24-year-old has suffered another setback which is turning his season into a nightmare.

According to Sport (h/t Sport Witness), Sandro picked up a hamstring injury during the international break, in a friendly against Salamanca. He missed two games earlier in the season due to a muscle injury and could be absent for the remainder of October.

The Spaniard has made six appearances for Valladolid and has yet to ripple the back of the net. His last goal came for Everton against Atalanta on November 2017. Sandro has scored just one goal in 16 since joining the Toffees which has led to him being loaned out to get first-team football.

The 24-year-old has struggled to recapture his form in Spain, however. Sandro failed to score in 18 appearances at Sevilla (January 30, 2018 – June 30, 2018), 26 appearances at Real Sociedad (August 30, 2018) and six at Valladolid (July 2, 2019 – present).

His side have three games remaining this month – Athletic Bilbao (October 20), Eibar (October 26) and Barcelona (October 29). Whether Sandro will feature remains to be seen.
