Everton have announced the addition of Dutch sports director Marcel Brands.

Everton have confirmed Steve Walsh has left the club and has been replaced by Brands.

Brands has overseen PSV's recent success in the Eredivisie, winning the title in three of the last four seasons.

“It is a privilege to be joining Everton as Director of Football and I am incredibly excited to take on this challenge," said Brands.“The fantastic passion of the fans for their Club, the magnificent history of the Club over the years and the ambition and purpose we have as people tasked with driving the Club forward all mean that we need to be competing for honours against the Premier League elite.

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