Everton striker Kean tribute to Brands: Thank you, thank you, thank you

Everton striker Moise Kean appreciates the support of sporting director Marcel Brands.

The Dutchman was key to Kean signing last August from Juventus in a surprise move.

The Italy international said, "It was incredibly touching. What he said to my mum is that he would look after me and, with my mum being the most important person in my life, this showed me even more that I would be made to feel at home here.

"Every time I see him, every day, every second - I just want to keep saying, 'Thank you, thank you, thank you', which might be excessive but in all seriousness he was the most important person for me in deciding to come here."
