"However, we have made the decision that, as part of our longer-term plan, we will be appointing a new manager this summer and will be commencing this process immediately".

Watford have claimed that illegal negotiations were held between Silva and Everton after the Merseysiders sacked Ronald Koeman in October, a meeting which formed part of the grounds for which Silva was dismissed for in January.

Rooney had seen his involvement limited under Allardyce, but could be convinced to stay at his boyhood club by a new regime.
