Silva provides Everton transfer update
Everton manager Marco Silva has confirmed that there is likely to be a potential outgoing at Everton in the coming days with Oumar Niasse set to leave the club on loan to Cardiff City.
The Portuguese also confirmed that Phil Jagielka, James McCarthy and Morgan Schneiderlin look to be staying and are working hard to get back into contention.
He said: “There is strong interest from Cardiff in Oumar Niasse but nothing is done yet. We have to wait and see.
“What I can tell you is nothing is done, but the interest is strong. Something could happen but until it is done there is nothing more to say.”
When asked about Phil Jagielka and Morgan Schneiderlin the boss said that the players are likely to stay.
Silva said: “Their future? It’s here with me. Working hard like they are. Not Jagielka now because he is injured.
“He was injured two days ago but like the others he is working hard to achieve their goals.
“If you remember Jagielka started the first game in our starting XI, Morgan Schneiderlin also started the first games in our starting XI.
“After that it is a matter of performances and matter of decisions I make for the next match but their future will be here with us working hard to play again and to help our squad win matches.
“It is not just them. I can remember other names if you want. I understand Jagielka is our captain and is important to our club and our dressing room.
“Morgan is a senior player too, but you are forgetting James McCarthy who is not in the squad list either.”
Silva was also quizzed on a potential move for Michy Batshuayi.
“It’s not the moment for us to talk about player a, b, c or d or if they could interest us in our model as a team.
“We have to work with the players we have here and get them better every day. That is our job.”
Will Everton sign anyone in the January transfer window?
