Cuco Martina was brought to Everton by Ronald Koeman in 2017 and he has been an underwhelming addition to say the very least, but a recent report suggests that his time at Goodison Park is coming to an end.
Marco Silva quickly stamped his authority at the club in the summer by making a handful of popular new signings, but he also sought to get rid of the deadwood.
Cuco Martina, a player who consistently struggled at left-back last season, was exiled by Silva in August when he completed a season-long loan deal to join Stoke City.
However, according to respected Times journalist Paul Joyce, that deal is now set to be cancelled and Martina will move to Feyenoord on a loan deal which will eventually become permanent.

Indeed, Joyce confirmed the news via his Twitter account on transfer deadline day, leaving Everton fans with hearts in their mouths after reading the first six words.
Martina struggled to adapt to life at Goodison Park and his departure will be welcomed with open arms by supporters who will be wondering which member of Everton’s staff pushed for him to be signed in 2017.
After being absent for Stoke’s last three league matches, the decision to cancel Martina’s deal ahead of an imminent move to Holland will not arrive as a huge surprise.
