Marco Silva has vowed there will be no repeat of the conduct which saw Everton hit with a two-year Academy transfer ban.

The Blues were fined £500,000 after being found guilty of illegal approaches to players.

Everton admitted an allegation that Academy staff had "offered inducements to a player and his family to encourage the player to register with the club".

A club investigation found that Everton were guilty of breaking similar recruitment rules with another six players.

Silva was not involved with the club during the transgressions, but was nevertheless faced with offering his opinion on the situation.

"It's not a good thing," the Portuguese boss said. "The club work with the Premier League and everything is solved now.

The true damage done by Everton's Academy transfer ban - and the legitimate questions that must be asked

"What I can say is it is something that will not happen in the future at our club because our way is different.

"Now everything is finished. To be honest it's not something which affects us daily, our focus is clear and that is to improve our team and prepare for the next match day-by-day."

Everton are yet to make a decision on the future of Martin Waldron, with the internal investigation ongoing.
