The Toffees recently sacked Rafael Benitez following a shambolic season that has seen Everton struggle for consistency and are threatened with battling relegation as they are currently placed 16th on the Premier league table.

Club legend Duncan Ferguson has been placed in temporary charge of the team until a permanent manager is appointed and it is now confirmed by the Daily Mail that Everton’s main target Jose Mourinho has now turned down the opportunity to return to English football as he says he is fully committed to the AS Roma project.

‘In terms of emotion, passion, empathy, of being happy working with Roma, I say I am 11 out of 10,' he said on Thursday.
‘I am truly, very, very happy to be at a club where I feel the people trust me. I couldn’t be happier than this.
‘In football terms, playing to finish between fourth and eighth place is obviously not what I want, but this is a moment of a different project for me and we will be better off next season.
‘Having said that, I am happy right now and would not change this Roma project for any other.

Other managers also being considered for the Everton job include former player and current Derby Boss Wayne Rooney, former Chelsea manager Franck Lampard and Belgium manager Roberto Martinez.
