Everton youngster Joao Silva has returned to Portugal for a season-long loan with Vitoria Setubal.

The 21-year old has not yet made a first team appearance for the Toffees since joining from Aves last summer and spent the second part of last season on loan with Uniao de Leiria where he scored four goals in 12 matches.

Now he will head back to his homeland to further his development with Everton confirming a loan to Vitoria who finished 12th in the Portuguese Liga last term.
