After sacking Ronald Koeman with no immediate contingency plan, the Merseyside outfit are still without a permanent manager - leaving David Unsworth with the reigns of the team coming out of the global break.

And SunSport have been told Watford are not interested in speaking to Everton about their current boss moving to Merseyside.

Everton have seen an approach for Watford manager Marco Silva rejected.

Silva wants the chance to talk to Everton but does not have a release clause in the two-year deal he signed over the summer. Having lost to Leicester in his first league game in temporary control of the team, Unsworth led Everton to a 3-2 victory over (incidentally) Marco Silva's Watford before the global break.

So in that case Watford will have to reassure Silva his ambitions for the rest of his time in Hertfordshire can be matched by the Hornets board.

Everton would not have made an approach for Silva without having an idea he fancied moving to Goodison Park.

Since parting ways with Dutchman Ronald Koeman towards the end of last month, the Toffees - now in the hands of David Unsworth on an interim basis - have been linked with a number of possible replacements, such as Sam Allardyce, Sean Dyche and Diego Simeone.

Caretaker boss Unsworth has overseen four games so far, losing three, and he's likely to remain at the helm for the weekend's clash at Crystal Palace, who were the first top-flight team to change managers, switching Frank de Boer for Roy Hodgson.
