Everton striker Joao Silva has revealed he is keen on a move to Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes.
The Portugal U21 forward has yet to make a single first-team appearance for the Toffees since his move from Portuguese second division side CD Aves in the summer of 2010.
The 22-year-old returned to his homeland to play for Uniao Leiria on loan in January 2011 in a bid to gain more first-team experience before spending the whole of last season with Vitoria Setubal.
Silva still has a year left on his contract at Goodison Park and the player revealed the Toffees are reluctant to let him leave.
However, the highly-rated striker admits he would be open to a move Vitoria Guimaraes after confirming their interest in him.
"Everton do not want my exit but this move would be of interest to me," Silva told A Bola.
"Guimaraes were always a club that pleased me.
"I do not want to say too much on the subject but if the chance arises I would not rule it out."
