Everton name new London scouting chief

Former West Bromwich Albion and Charlton Athletic attacker has been named as Everton's Academy Area Coordinator for London.

The new role was created last year as part of a scouting restructure.

The Liverpool Echo says the position was initially filled by Chris Scudder but he since accepted a job at West Ham United as their Emerging Talent Manager and left earlier this year.

Thomas came to Goodison in January having held a part-time scouting position at Chelsea and will be Everton's eyes and ears in the capital for talent aged under-13-u-18.

He will report directly into Everton's Head of Academy recruitment Chris Perkins.
