Everton manager Marco Silva allayed fears of striker Oumar Niasse’s potential departure from the Premier League club, with the Portuguese boss saying he had plans for the Senegal international.
Niasse, who scored eight goals, was used primarily as a substitute last season, leading to speculation about his future as he failed to hold down a starting spot under a succession of managers.
“Of course, Oumar Niasse is in our plans,” Silva said.
“He is different than all the others when you look at Cenk (Tosun) and at Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Niasse is completely different and in some moments… he will give different things to the others. “It is a matter of my decision, in the right moments of the game.”
