Marco Silva deals West Ham and Bournemouth transfer blow

The midfielder will be going nowhere this January

Everton boss Marco Silva has dealt both West Ham and Bournemouth a transfer blow in relation to one player linked with an exit this month.

Both could be on the lookout for some reinforcements this month and Everton could also allow some players to leave.

Silva admitted today that the club could only buy players this month if they were to sell some players first.

That has left the futures of a couple of players up in the air, one of them being James McCarthy.

The Irishman recently recovered from a broken leg that he suffered roughly a year ago against West Brom.

Though, despite now being fit, he’s finding it hard to make it into Everton’s matchday squads.

That has lead to reported interest from both West Ham and Bournemouth in recent weeks.

Now, Marco Silva has spoken out about the player and it’s not good news for either side.

“This is not something in my mind”

The Portuguese boss has claimed that he is not thinking about a McCarthy exit.

Instead, he suggested that the squad is big enough for the player.

“This is not something in my mind,” he explained in his press conference.

“We have 22 players in our squad, plus the goalkeepers.”

For now, it looks unlikely that McCarthy will be leaving the club.

Though, there is still a lot of time in this transfer window for someone to change Silva’s mind.
