FORMER Everton, Hull and Watford boss Marco Silva is the latest manager to be linked with the vacant managerial position at Cherries.

The Sun are reporting the Portuguese coach is “open to a return to English football” and “could be turned to in the coming weeks”.

Lisbon-born Silva first started his managerial career at Estoril before going on to take charge at Sporting Lisbon and Olympiacos.

He ventured into the English game with Hull in 2017 and went on to manage Watford, before being snapped up by Everton. He was sacked by the Toffees in December 2019.

Cherries’ board are searching for a new manager after sacking Jason Tindall earlier this month.

The Daily Echo understands they shortlisted candidates and held interviews earlier this week.

At the time of writing, former Huddersfield Town and Schalke boss David Wagner was favourite with bookmakers SkyBet to be named Cherries’ next permanent boss. He is odds on at 4/5.

Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira is priced at 9/2.
