PSV Eindhoven have confirmed Marcel Brands has left the club to join Everton as their new director of football.

Marcel Brands will take over as Everton's new director of football as part of an exciting shake-up on the blue half of Merseyside.

During his hugely successful eight year spell at the Phillips Stadion, Brands oversaw the club's transfer and academy strategy with Georginio Wijnaldum, Memphis Depay, Kevin Strootman and Dries Mertens among the many success stories from his tenure.

Marcel Brands has informed the supervisory board and his colleagues at PSV that he is leaving for Everton, said a statement from PSV.

The Premier League is of course a great thing.

"It is no straightforward challenge but this must be our motivation each and every day".

The appointment of Brands adds another layer to Everton's managerial shuffle with the departure of Sam Allardyce and the reshuffle at the club's director level.

'I'm wanting ahead to working with Farhad Moshiri and chairman Invoice Kenwright, whom I thank for entrusting me with this function and accountability.

"I know we have very committed people here who want only the best for Everton".

He will be tasked with the search for a new manager along with new chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale and deputy chairman Keith Harris, whose promotions were only announced on Tuesday evening.

Moshiri said: "Marcel's record of achievement has cemented his reputation across Europe and I am extremely pleased that we will be bringing his drive, energy and expertise to Everton. Now we will look to build something really strong and lasting here at Everton".

"It was clear to me in our conversations that he shares in the vision we have for the club and he has much to contribute in making us better and more equipped to challenge the top teams in the Premier League".

Having confirmed Sam Allardyce's departure earlier on Wednesdaday, Walsh has also paid the price for his horrific spending spree of last summer when only Jordan Pickford emerged with credit for a vast outlay exceeding £100 million.
