Everton boss Marco Silva says that the conditions in January are not conducive to buying players and that Everton fans should not expect any incomings this month.
Speaking after his sides 2-1 defeat at Southampton in the Premier League, where it was obvious the Blues lacked an out and out goalscorer, Silva said he wanted to stop the speculation.
In previous January transfer windows Everton have been linked with signing dozens of players, but Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun aside, January has never been a month in which Everton have wanted to splash the cash.
Oumar Niasse was the last player of any note before those two to sign in a January window, and the Senegalese left for Cardiff on loan this week with little fuss, despite attaining a certain cult status among some fans.
With just two wins from the last ten games, Silva will find himself under increased scrutiny as Everton boss, but seems determined that throwing money at the problem won’t solve it. For now at least.
He said, “Even to stop the speculation, I said that the feedback from our board is that we don’t have the conditions to go into the market.”
