Everton boss Marco Silva has insisted the signing of Fabian Delph from Manchester City does not mean Idrissa Gueye is set to leave the club.

Delph joined on a three-year deal for a fee believed to be £9m on Tuesday and is expected to compete for a midfield berth at Goodison Park after spending much of the end of his time at City as a makeshift left-back.

Meanwhile, Gueye has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, with Everton rejecting an offer of £26.2m from the French champions at the end of January’s transfer window.

However, Silva has told the Liverpool Echo he will be speaking to the 29-year-old when the midfielder returns to the club after international duty with Senegal to underline how important he remains for the team.

“Gana (Gueye) is still our player and, of course, if we lose Gana then we have to sign a player to replace him because you are talking about one player playing almost all of the games in our squad,” Silva said.

“If it will happen then we have to replace him, it is not because we have signed Fabian Delph.”

“I have to talk with him and show him how he is an important player for us”.
