Marco Silva is set to stay at Watford and not leave the club at this moment in time, according to a report.
The Evening Standard is reporting that the Vicarage Road boss has ‘accepted’ Watford’s decision to turn down any approach for his services, and he is set to ‘press on’ with the job.
Reportedly Everton approached Watford yesterday to speak to Silva but the Hornets rejected this immediately.
Silva has become favourite for the Everton job after a fine start to the season for Watford, which currently has them sitting in ninth place in the Premier League.
Silva first came to the attention of clubs after a good spell at Hull City, where despite some excellent results he was unable to prevent them from being relegated. He signed a two year contract with Watford in May.
Everton have been linked with a host of names since Ronald Koeman was sacked last month, with the likes of Silva, Sam Allardyce and Sean Dyche all being named favourites for the job at one stage.
At the moment caretaker boss David Unsworth is still in charge, and they may still be the case when Everton face a trip to bottom of the league Crystal Palace on Saturday.
