Mallorca supremo denies link for ex-Everton chief Wyness

New Real Mallorca own Paul Davidson has denied reports that former Everton chief executive Keith Wyness will be joining the Spanish Liga club.

Davidson, 53, said although he was friendly with Wyness he had only asked him for "advice and assistance" about football clubs before agreeing to buy the 93.7% share in the Spanish La Liga team earlier this month.

Davidson said: "Keith's a great friend of mine but when buying tiles you talk to the people who know about tiles.

"I do wish him well. It is a great loss to the club. It is a great loss to Everton."

Davidson said he had spoken to Wyness about football clubs because he had been a "success" and he believed it would not be long before he had another job.

He said: "Keith Wyness has been advising me about this (Real Mallorca) all the way. The deal would not have happened at Real Mallorca without him. He has given advice and assistance.

"He has not been asked to join the club."
