Silva is keen to offload many of Everton’s fringe players this summer, as he looks to trim his squad.
However, the Portuguese boss has reportedly decided that Schneiderlin still has a part to play at Everton, after doing a u-turn.
The French international struggled for form over the past campaign, and was criticised by many Everton supporters.
Schneiderlin’s attitude was called into question, with Toffees fans accusing him of not putting in enough effort.
Silva thinks he could get the best out of Schneiderlin though, and wants to keep him around for next season.
Schneiderlin could now form part of Silva’s midfield next term, as Everton look to improve on their disappointing campaign this time around.
