Everton move for Fleetwood technical director Gretar Steinsson

Everton are moving for Fleetwood Town technical director Gretar Steinsson.

The Sun says the ex-Bolton striker, 36, is poised for a recruitment role at Goodison Park after three years at Highbury Stadium.

He will work with Dutchman Marcel Brands, the Everton director of football who started at the club over the summer and oversaw first-team changes for new boss Marco Silva.

Steinsson had a short spell in Holland with AZ Alkmaar and is highly-regarded after his work in League One.

Fleetwood reached the play-offs two seasons ago and this year appointed Joey Barton to boost their hopes of reaching the Championship.
