Marcel Brands will join Everton later this month, according to Sky Sports.

The PSV Eindhoven technical director’s move will be confirmed once PSV are confirmed as Eredivisie champions – PSV are seven points clear with five games left to play.

Sky Sports report the 55-year old Dutchman is represented by agent Mino Raiola and Everton’s owner Farhad Moshiri “believes the pair could help them land the talent to make them a top-four Premier League team” and that “Brands’ arrival could signal Steve Walsh’s departure from Goodison – less than two years after he joined from Leicester”.
