Everton have made the announcement of the Swiss international's move as the first piece of business of transfer deadline day.
Signed by Roberto Martinez in January, Tarashaj featured in pre-season before he picked up a minor injury but has not been a part of Ronald Koeman's first-team plans since the season kicked off.
Although he broke through into the full Switzerland team in time for Euro20167 where he made an appearance as a substitute, Koeman's assessment appears to be that the 21-year-old isn't quite ready for regular first-team duty at Everton.
Tarashaj will have an opportunity to gain valuable experience in the Bundesliga having cut his teeth in the Swiss league.

This manager seems ruthless and good on him makes a decision and if they don't fit move them on.
A couple more to go yet, I would think?

Good luck to the lad - game time is what it's all about.

Both have moved on for the season, good luck to them both and I hope they have great seasons.

Good luck, Shani.

I think Koeman got this one wrong. He should have made sure of his new striker signing before sanctioning this move. Even with Enner Valencia coming in we are still only left with Kone as back up, hardly fills you with confidence does he?
And don't even mention Niasse, "my wife won't let me move".

If he can break into their first team and play a few games, maybe Koeman will take another look. But my feeling is he's out in the shop window and won't be coming back.

Hopefully a loan will prove whether he can move himself into Ronald's future plans or not, plenty of time for him.

He didn't play much pre-season for the same reason Lukaku didn't, he was away at the Euros, and it appears he was given a number just had only the one chance to use it during which he was injured.
Otherwise, I've never actually seen him play and I don't think I'm in the minority on that one.
