Muhamed Besic is set to return to Goodison Park this summer after enjoying a season-long loan with Sheffield United.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international will be back on Everton’s books as he prepares to see his loan spell with the Blades come to and end. Whilst the Premier League are allowing clubs to extend loan deals set to expire at the end of June as a result of the fact that the season is now likely to be played into July and August, it seems that Chris Wilder will not be taking up this option with regards to Besic (Liverpool Echo).
He will therefore return to Goodison Park next month, where he has just one year left on his current deal and according to the Liverpool Echo, another loan deal or a permanent sale is likely to be on the cards.
However, due to the current financial climate, the Toffees could actually benefit from having the 27-year-old to hand.
Should Everton keep or sell Muhamed Besic?
Everton are struggling in the midfield department at the moment. Indeed, the club are without Morgan Schneiderlin, who suffered a torn meniscus earlier this year and Jean-Philippe Gbamin as well. The Ivorian has been dealt a fresh injury setback after only just returning from a lengthy time on the sidelines and will be out for a further six months.
Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly been planning a bid for Napoli midfielder Allan (per Tuttomercatoweb via HITC), but if finances don’t support the purchase, the Blues will need all the personnel they can get. The addition of Besic could provide injury cover and an extra option on the bench as Everton hope to qualify for Europe next season.
The £2.16-valued defensive midfielder has scored one goal for Sheffield United in the FA Cup this season, contributing to their 2-0 win over Millwall whilst also making nine Premier League appearances (via Transfermarkt).
