Elche president Jose Sepulcre has dismissed reports that Everton have made an offer for midfielder Carlos Sanchez.
Aston Villa midfielder Yacouba Sylla is poised to join Turkish club Kayseri Erciyesspor on loan, Sky Sports understands.
Everton have confirmed the appointment of key members of new manager Roberto Martinez's backroom staff.
The Spaniard has been reunited with his former Wigan staff Graeme Jones (assistant manager), Kevin Reeves (chief scout), Inaki Bergara (goalkeeping coach) and Richard Evans (head of performance).
Their appointments follow the departure of Steve Round, Chris Woods and Jimmy Lumsden who were released from their contracts on Monday to join former Toffees boss David Moyes at Manchester United.
