However, Silva has insisted Ademola Lookman will not be leaving despite interest from RB Leipzig, where he enjoyed a successful loan spell last season. “He is our player and he stays,” the Everton manager said.

I think that's quite definitive and consistent with the message that Brands/Silva have put across all summer. If he is sulking a bit, they'll back themselves to get past the window closing, involve the lad and show him that this club can be a good place for him.

I didnít say I know that i said he SEEMS to be.

Describing him as possibly a 'cancer' is way over the top. Pretty horrible way of describing a young lad who has got a few misgivings (in my opinion, understandably) about the club.

Nah! Just good negotiating from Everton. Still think he will be sold.

I've no idea why you think that. Silva couldn't have been any clearer in saying that he's staying here and he's our player.

ďHe is our present and our futureĒ

Thatís like something you say to a girl to ensure you get a blowie before the evening is over.

Actually laughed out loud at that one, while walking round town. Cheers.

The pressure isn't on him. Jamo's right. He needs to be nurtured and supported to play his best football, gain some confidence and to build a connection with the club.

The fans gave him a good reception last week so hopefully that's a good step in the right direction.

Silva couldn't be any clearer in his desire to keep him and work with him, which tells me he thinks he could be a very good player.

He might of proven himself in a league that has two dominant teams and a load of dross and if thatís where he wants to stay then up to him, should just put in a transfer request, we take the 20 mill and move on.

That's spectacularly dismissive of the Bundesliga.

It seems like Silva and Brands want to keep him, which I suppose is the most important thing.

People might say they are just keeping his price as high as possible, which is plausible, but everything we've heard from them both has suggested they would prefer to keep him and improve him.

If they're happy to do that, despite this speculation about his attitude not being amazing, I'm more than happy to trust that judgement. Lookman might not see it now, but Silva's apparent attention to detail and intense training sessions could be good for his development.

These Silva comments hint at Lookman displaying a titty lip and being a bit of a lazy arse

I found it quite encouraging tbh. Basically saying he's grafted in training this week. Obviously he should be doing that anyway and he needs to sustain it, but I'm liking that Silva is giving him a chance and trying to build a relationship.
