Everton news: Sky Sports reporter reveals top three manager candidates – new name emerges
Allardyce was relieved of his duties at Everton this morning after just six months at the club.
The former England boss was brought in to take the Toffees away from the relegation zone and he did just that, as they ended eight in the Premier League.
Marco Silva was Everton’s first-choice to replace the sacked Ronald Koeman last November but Watford, who Silva then managed, rejected the approach.
Silva is the current favourite for the Everton job but it has been complicated after Watford made an official complaint to the Premier League about that approach yesterday.
Myers claims Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca is also in the frame, as is Porto manager Sergio Conceicao.
“I have three names for you really,” he told Sky Sports News.
“The favourite obviously is Marco Silva, the former Watford manager.
“I’ve also got two names in Paulo Fonseca, the Shakhtar Donetsk manager, who has been strongly linked with Everton, was linked before Sam Allardyce got the job as well.
“He’s still in the frame I think.
“Also a newer one that later on this afternoon has come into frame is the Porto manager Sergio Conceicao.
“You can put your money on who you want, but certainly Marco Silva is the bookies’ favourite at the moment.”
