Everton facing points deduction for 'tapping-up' of Marco Silva

Everton are reportedly facing a points deduction or a substantial fine for allegedly tapping-up Marco Silva while he was manager of Watford.

The Toffees have been accused by their top-flight rivals of making an illegal approach for the Portuguese, who has since departed Vicarage Road and been appointed at Goodison Park.

Silva was brought in by Everton during the summer, 4 months after being sacked by Watford, but the manner of the Merseyside outfit's initial approach is still under investigation.

EPL chiefs are pushing for a resolution and, that could mean Everton being docked points in the most serious outcome.

The report indicates that Everton officials, including owner Farhad Moshiri, have handed over phone records and diaries as they are determined to fight off the allegations.
