Everton transfer news: Marco Silva claims Toffees will only sign players on one condition

MARCO SILVA has revealed Everton’s transfer stance, hinting that the Toffees could be set for a quiet January.

The British-Iranian business has vowed to stand by Silva, despite a worrying run of form that has seen them drop to 11th in the table.

“We did our homework and put a big bet on Marco and we stick with him.

He has our total support,” said Moshiri.

“Consistency has been an issue but we have had some terrific performances and the challenge in the second half is to have more of those performances.

Everton have been linked with a move for Michy Batshuayi, Valencia are in discussions with Chelsea about cutting his season-long loan short.

When asked whether there is any genuine interest in the Belgian, Silva claimed that there will only be new arrivals at Goodison Park this month on one condition.

“For us to do something it will mean someone has to leave the club,” he told press ahead of the visit of Bournemouth.

“I don’t like to talk about players of other teams.

What is important for me is our players, what we can do with them or not.

The former Watford boss then insisted he’s well aware of the board’s expectations and knows that there’s work to be done.

“When you take out of context these type of words, you can read it in your own way,” he added.

“With our owner, our chairman, we are talking every week.

“We don’t need to have a general meeting to have contact, I know what their opinion is.

Victory against the Cherries could lift Everton up 8th and with matches against strugglers Southampton and Huddersfield to come, Silva will be keen to make amends for a torrid December.
