Watford manager Marco Silva coy on future

The Toffees' pursuit of a replacement for Ronald Koeman, who was sacked three and a half weeks ago, was expected to have at least gained some momentum, if not actually been sorted, by the end of the worldwide break.

"I dont answer this question".

Allardyce had emerged as a contender to become Ronald Koeman's permanent replacement at Goodison Park, however the club's hesitation to begin negotiations left him feeling unwanted.

Silva, 40, has only overseen 12 matches for Watford and has inspired a promising start to the season since his summer appointment. If not, I will shake their hand and wish them all the best because I want them to succeed and I want this club to succeed.

The Hornets host West Ham tomorrow and the Portuguese is top of the Toffees' managerial wish list.

What I want to do is talk with my owner and my board, and my players as well, nobody else.

The Watford manager has been offered around £4million-per-year by struggling Everton

Asked about a potential move to Everton, Silva said: "It's for the board, the owners to talk to each other about the situation". Their only Premier League away success of 2017 came in January against a Palace side managed by Sam Allardyce, another candidate approached by the Everton hierarchy.

"Like I said in the beginning, what will be will be, and other people will make the decision on who will be the Everton manager and I am fine with that".

"It would surprise me that anyone would rule themselves out of being the Everton manager".

"For me it is a normal situation, I understand the question". It's a big club, nothing more.

Watford have lost their last three matches - and the most recent was at Everton.
