Brands admits Everton still paying for past market mistakes

Everton director of football Marcel Brands admits they're still paying for past market mistakes.

The likes of Yannick Bolasie, Sandro Ramirez and Kevin Mirallas are all on high-earning contracts at Goodison, but will have no future at the club when they return from their respective loan deals this summer.

Brands told NOS: "The fact that you can spend money means that you have to be much more careful.

"If you make a mistake here, you will hardly be able to get rid of them.

"Players earn a lot of money and there are not many clubs that can handle such salaries or transfer fees."
