Watford manager Marco Silva refuses to deny speculation that he is interested in the Everton job.

Watford manager Marco Silva has refused to deny speculation that he is keen to take the Everton job.

The Portuguese moved to Vicarage Road over the summer and has overseen a fine start to the season, guiding the Hornets to 15 points from their first 11 games and ninth place in the table.

The Toffees are in the hunt for a new manager after sacking Ronald Koeman at the end of last month, meanwhile, and have reportedly been turned down twice by Watford over a move for Silva.

"What I can tell you about this situation is I look at this situation like for some players when they play well, or somebody that the coach wants from another club," Silva told journalists today. "For me, now this is a case for the board and the owners to discuss the situation. For me it is a normal situation, I understand the question."

Asked if he wanted to talk to Everton but was being prevented from doing so, he responded: "I don't answer this question. I read many many things in the week. I need to talk with my owner, my board and my players as well. I do my job normally during the week.

"I don't want to talk about Everton. I am here to talk about the West Ham match. If you want to talk to me about Everton, it's not the club where I work."

Everton are currently 15th place in the table, two points above the relegation zone.

Would Marco Silva be a good appointment for Everton?
