PSV Eindhoven general manager Toon Gerbrands has confirmed that Marcel Brands is holding talks with Everton.

The confirmation comes days after Sky Sports claimed the PSV Eindhoven technical director will move to Everton once PSV are confirmed as Eredivisie champions.

Appearing on Fox Sports show De Tafel van Kees, PSV general manager Toon Gerbrands said: “They have recently reported to him, but also twice before. A year ago and a half year ago.

“So it has not gone through twice and even now the contract is not complete at all. Everton also has to report to PSV, that is not the case. They have only reported to Marcel, and he has informed us nicely about this. If you know Marcel, it is not done yet.

“His feeling must be one hundred percent good. It must be 100 percent accurate. If it is not quite right yet and his feeling is not good, he just says no. The fact that he has a conversation with them does indicate that he is considering it”
