With the return of the Premier League, eyes are already turning towards what Everton might do in the transfer market.

The Blues have come back to the football pitch with two positive results, taking four points from their opening two matches since the restart.

But the need for Carlo Ancelotti to improve his squad is still evident, and debate currently surrounds the upcoming transfer window and how it will play out due to the coronavirus pandemic.

What Everton still need to consider is the raft of loan players who will be returning over the next few weeks.

Players have been allowed to extend their temporary spells with clubs for the remainder of their current campaigns, if applicable, and a number of the Blues contingent have taken up that option.

However that's not the case for all, and the long term futures of many are still up in the air.

Here's the current situation as things stand for each of Everton's loanees.

Jonjoe Kenny

Out of all loanees to spend a temporary spell away from Everton, Jonjoe Kenny might just be the most successful.

His time in Germany with Schalke has no doubt proven to be a great decision from the defender, as he has developed and honed his game while in the Bundesliga.

David Wagner's side might not have enjoyed their time following the restart, but they have made no secret of their desire to keep Kenny for at least another term - which shows just how well he has performed for them in quickly becoming a fan favourite.

For now, with the Bundesliga season concluded, the defender will return to Everton - where there is still a lot to be decided over the current right-back options.

Sandro Ramirez

Sandro's third loan spell in as many seasons away from Goodison Park has already surpassed his previous two.

While at Sevilla and Real Sociedad, the striker didn't manage to bag any goals - but this term he has scored three goals in 20 La Liga appearances for Real Valladolid.

As things stand though, there is still uncertainty over whether the Spaniard will stay at his loan club until the end of this term.

Valladolid want to keep Sandro for their remaining games of the season, but have yet to come to an agreement with Everton - with the current loan agreement set to run out on Tuesday.

Luke Garbutt

A successful spell with Ipswich Town on loan has signified the end of Luke Garbutt's time with Everton.

The left-back, who at one point seemed an exciting prospect destined for the Blues first team, has encountered some roadblocks over the past few years.

The defender's contract is up at the end of the season and the club have already announced that he will be finding pastures new next term, which hasn't come as a surprise.

Regardless, this loan will have been a fantastic experience for Garbutt, and will hopefully help him find a club he can continue his fine form with in the coming years.

Shani Tarashaj

This one is pretty easy.

Shani Tarashaj, having never made a competitive first-team appearance for Everton after his move from Grasshopper Zurich in 2016, is on a two-year loan with Dutch side FC Emmen.

His contract was originally due to run out this summer, but his deal with the Blues was restructured to secure this temporary spell away from the club and release another chunk of the wage bill.

The Swiss star will then leave Everton in 2021.

Josh Bowler

Having played a big part in the Blues under-23s securing a brilliant double last term, it was time for Josh Bowler to secure a loan move and get some first team football under his belt.

That has come with Hull City where Bowler has made 25 appearances in the Championship so far - but started in just nine of those outings.

The winger is staying with his loan side as they continue to battle relegation for the remainder of the campaign.

Nathan Broadhead

Another important player for the U23s over the course of the previous campaign, Nathan Broadhead was more than deserving of some first team action this season.

A loan move to Burton Albion followed and he impressed on multiple occasions for the League One side, scoring two goals and bagging two assists in his 19 appearances - with injuries hampering part of the winger's term.

With England's third division being curtailed early, aside from the playoffs, Broadhead's season is over and he will return to Everton.

The midfielder has one year left on his current contract after signing a new deal with the Blues last summer.

Muhamed Besic

The midfielder is another who has had multiple loan moves over the past few seasons, with his most recent spell taking him to Sheffield United.

Besic only started two Premier League games for the division's surprise package this term, but it was expected he would stay with the club until the end of the season.

However, the Bosnia international instead refused an extension and returned to Finch Farm.

The 27-year-old will have one year left to run on his Everton contract upon his return, with the club expected to make the midfielder available for sale or loan again this summer.

Matthew Pennington

Things really started to turn a corner for Matty Pennington at the turn of the year.

After previously being frustrated at a lack of regular game time with Hull City, the Everton defender has forced his way into their team on a much more consistent basis with a string of solid performances.

The centre-back will stay on Humberside for the remainder of the current season to help in the Tigers' attempts to avoid relegation from the Championship.

With a year left to run on his Blues contract, it's likely the 25-year-old will then search for a permanent move in the summer and more regular game time with it.

Fraser Hornby

It seems that Fraser Hornby's long term future will lie away from Everton.

The striker enjoyed a loan spell with KV Kortrijk in Belgium this term before the effects of the coronavirus pandemic struck, but his next move already looks to be nearing.

The 20-year-old has been the subject of a lot of interest, with Stade de Reims close to agreeing a deal believed to be in the region of £1.8m for the youngster.

Yannick Bolasie

Bolasie secured the latest of his loan moves to Sporting in the summer after a successful spell with Anderlecht in the second half of the 2018/19 season.

His time in Lisbon got off to a decent start too, but gradually the winder started to lose his place in the side.

Eventually, the 31-year-old's time with the Portuguese side was cut short and he returned to Everton, where he still has one year left to run on his current contract with the club.

Kieran Dowell

A loan move to Derby County in this first half of this term didn't work out for Kieran Dowell, who returned to Everton briefly before heading back out for another spell away from the club.

This time it was Wigan Athletic who offered the attacking midfielder an opportunity, which was put in jeopardy early on by picking up an ankle injury in January.

However, the youngster has extended his contract with the Latics for the final matches of the Championship season in a bid to pick up as much game time as possible in the closing stages of the term.

Callum Connolly

Another who has had two loan spells this term, Callum Connolly initially found himself at Lincoln City in the first half of the season before returning to the Blues in January.

From there, the youngster completed a switch to Fleetwood Town in which he has helped Joey Barton's side rise up the League One table.

They are involved in the playoffs, where they will face Wycombe Wanderers home and away at the beginning of July for a potential trip to Wembley.

Connolly will stay with the club to see out their upcoming journey, and he won't be the only Everton man there.

Lewis Gibson

Lewis Gibson has enjoyed a fine spell with Fleetwood Town since January.

His influence in defence, making nine appearances in League One in what is his first taste of regular senior football, has been key to Barton's side rising up the table.

As previously mentioned, they are in the playoffs and Gibson is staying with the club to potentially help them be promoted to the Championship.

The defender will then return to Everton, having signed a new deal with the club before being allowed out on loan.

Jonas Lossl

Having not made his competitive debut for Everton, Jonas Lossl returned to Huddersfield Town on loan in January to cover for the injured Kamil Grabara.

The shot-stopper has extended his loan with the club until the end of the season as he looks to help them avoid relegation from the Championship.

Then, the Denmark international will return to Everton where he is expected to challenge Jordan Pickford for the No. 1 jersey - with Maarten Stekelenburg set to leave the club at the end of the campaign.

Kieran Phillips

The Everton youngster secured a loan move to the Championship with Huddersfield in January, and he is staying with the club until the end of the season.

The Blues have already announced that the youngster will then leave Goodison Park in the summer on the expiry of his current contract.
