Questions about Oumar Niasse’s future at Everton appear to arise as each day passes.
The Senegal international has failed to make an impact at Goodison Park and is expected to move on from the club in January.
However, a report in Turkey seems to have suggested otherwise.
The Turkish Super Lig club are thought to be interested in the out of favour attacker as they need to make their own additions to the front line this winter.
However, Silva appears to have told them that they do not have a chance of bringing Niasse to Istanbul.
Interestingly, Fanatik do also claim that a number of Premier League clubs are thought to be interested in the 28-year-old.
If the report is to be believed, it would appear strange for Niasse to have a potential move to Turkey blocked.
However, a move to one of the Premier League sides rumoured to be interested may work in The Toffees favour more than a spell with the Istanbul giants.
Silva would be able to keep a closer eye on the 28-year-old and would be able to see how well he plays in the top-flight, should he get regular minutes on the pitch – something he is far from getting at Goodison Park.
