Sam Allardyce tells talkSPORT he has pulled out of running for Everton job

Watford have rebuffed an approach by Everton for manager Marco Silva, according to a report.

"It never materialised as I thought it would, unfortunately", he told talkSPORT.

"For me, such a long time without a decision, I had to make a decision myself".

"The decision was it was probably better it wasn't me, and I'd move on to something else".

Silva is seen as "the best possible candidate for the job", and Everton "feel they can clinch" the manager with promises of an inflated wage and funds to spend.

Despite losing three games on the spin in the Premier League, Watford can still be happy with their start to the campaign as they sit ninth in the table on 15 points, memorably beating Arsenal along the way. I didn't quite get that feeling overall.

'They were hesitating that I was the man'.

After speculation surrounding Sam Allardyce and Burnley boss Sean Dyche, who have both been backed to shorter than even money since Ronald Koeman left the club in October, it now seems that the Toffees have changed their approach.

He may not be the huge name the Everton board seemingly want, but it was always going to be hard to attract that calibre of manager to Goodison Park given the club's struggles this season and their lack of a quality forward.

After all, the Toffees are in desperate need of a new manager following the dismissal of Ronald Koeman nearly a month ago, and Garcia could well fit the bill.

"I want David Unsworth to get an opportunity", Neville told Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, the Toffees reportedly made contact with Silva on Monday (13 November) but their chances of securing the Portuguese's services appear slim, as his contract does not include a break-up clause.
