Once vaunted in his own country as having the potential to be the next Xherdan Shaqiri, the Swiss will return to Finch Farm again this summer but with his future very much uncertain.

Hopefully the lad can still make a career for himself, probably in one if the lower leagues across Europe.
Probably will leave on loan again until his contract expires.

From the moment he signed with us in January 2016, as best I can determine Tarashaj has scored exactly five goals in all competitions... four at Grasshoppers and one at Frankfurt. All in 2016.

And it's this kind of investment in the potential of young players that the club has set its store on... let's see how many leave and how many more come in through the summer window...

As for the Echo, I'm done reading it for the political agenda they spout.

Everton have had many ''future'' stars only for them to implode before they did anything.
I hasten to add that many players who are sent on loan are not really up to snuff and when they return are the same way.
Barkley was rated, went on loan, came back, shone for a while but has become an average player and will not get any better.

It's a waste of money, but these are relatively small bets.
It's worth spending a bit more though – Lookman, Onyekuru and Vlasic all seem to be valued at something of a transfer profit. I couldn't tell you if that makes up for their wages.

Grasshoppers have won multiple cups and titles and after 68 years they have been relegated. Management and direction of the club seems to be forgotten.
Still early doors for some of our hierarchy but I hope we take notice.

Agree with you both. Immediately he looked like a fish out water. It was the same predicament as when we signed Niasse. It was like Martinez made transfer decisions based off weekly reviews from Shoot! magazine or something.
One thing I would give Moyes credit for was his due diligence. I saw a news piece one time and Moyesy kept diligent records of basically every halfway decent player under the age of 23. Some ended up signing, many never did... but the research was thorough.

He has played for Everton U23s (twice).
He has not played for the Everton first team proper (except in some meaningless friendlies that don't count as official appearances).

Oops, Michael beat me to it. Quicker hands there.
