Watford have turned down Everton’s approach for Marco Silva and won’t entertain further offers at any price for the Portuguese.
Reports today have suggested that Watford have put a value on their manager, who has been strongly linked with a move to Goodison Park, but we have been told that is not true and the club expects Marco Silva to stay at Vicarage Road.
Silva, who will take charge of Watford in Sunday’s Premier League match at home to West Ham, said on Friday: “I don’t know about an offer or not, or what’s happened.
“It’s for the board, the owners to talk to each other about the situation. For me it’s a normal situation. What’s most important in this moment is the game (against) West Ham.
“I look at this situation like when a player performs well, and (another club) tries to approach the owner or club.
“I have read many things during the week – that I didn’t want to talk to anybody; after that I want (to talk).
“Who I need to talk with is my owner, my board, my players as well: no one else. I do my job normally, and have since I’ve come here.
“I don’t want to talk about Everton. It’s not the club where I work. It’s a big club, nothing more.
“I am committed every day I work for the club.”
Everton dismissed Ronald Koeman nearly a month ago and caretaker boss David Unsworth has overseen one victory in his five matches in charge; they drew 2-2 at Crystal Palace on Saturday.
