Marco Silva has told the Liverpool Echo that no Everton players have asked to leave Goodison Park this month.

Everton have a huge squad, which has left a lot of senior players on the fringes of the squad at Merseyside.

The Toffees have let Mason Holgate and Kieran Dowell leave on loan, but no other players have left Everton this month.

And Silva insists that he has had nobody actively asking to leave, even if they have struggled for games.


“Until now, no-one believe me," Silva said.

“We spoke to Mason and we took the decision, the same with Kieran, but no-one else has knocked on my door and asked to leave the club.

“It is a good signal. It doesn't mean they are quiet, they are fighting for what they want, but it is a good signal.”

Kieran Dowell of Nottingham Forest applauds fans following the Sky Bet Championship match between Nottingham Forest and Derby County at City Ground on March 11, 2018 in Nottingham, England.

Whether Everton will still sell players this month remains to be seen, as they do have a very large squad.

James McCarthy and Morgan Schneiderlin are two of the players linked with moves away from Goodison Park.

Everton’s squad still needs work done to it, despite heavy investment in recent times.

The Toffees are currently in 10th place in the Premier League table, with their next match coming against Southampton.
