Cape Town - Everton manager Marco Silva is
confident a collapsed move to Paris Saint-Germain will not affect
Idrissa Gueye when he returns for the Toffees against Manchester City on
Silva has confirmed the midfielder will be available for the visit of
the Citizens after he failed to get a deadline-day move to Paris, and
expects a professional response.
The Senegal international reportedly wrote a letter to club officials
pleading to be allowed to join the Ligue 1 champions after their
initial bid was rejected but a second, improved approach of £26 million
was rebuffed as the window closed.
Gueye missed the next two matches with what the club said was a groin
injury but the 29-year-old could be selected against City and Silva is
confident he will return fully focused.
The Everton mentor said: "It was a tough period for him.
"When you have some clubs around you, important clubs in Europe, it
can make your focus different but he is a fantastic professional in our
club and I am sure he will be in the future also.
"It is important to him to keep doing the things he is because when a
club like that comes to sign him we know how Gana is doing things well
and I am here to keep helping him to keep performing at this level.
'If the good things come to him it is because he is doing well and that means he has to keep doing it."
