EVERTON have appointed Marco Silva as their new manager.
The 40-year-old, previously courted by the Toffees last year, signs a three-year-deal.
“I’m really proud to be the new Everton manager,” Silva told evertontv. “I’m excited and I’m really happy to take this big challenge for us as a club and for me as a manager.
“I know the huge history of Everton as a club and what the fans expect. I’m sure with everybody working together I will be ready for this challenge.”

The club have finally got their man having wanted him as a replacement for Ronald Koeman in October.
Silva, at the time Watford manager, was denied the opportunity to leave, even with Everton offering the Hornets £10m to seal the deal.
Silva was eventually sacked by the London club in January, with the approach from the Toffees blamed for their dip in form.
And an agreement between the two clubs was negotiated after Watford made an official complaint to the Premier League over an illegal approach for their manager.
