Everton are set to name ex-PSV Eindhoven sporting director Marcel Brands as their director of football.
The 56-year-old Dutchman will take over from former Leicester City chief scout Steve Walsh, who took the role at Goodison Park in July 2016.
Brands has just helped PSV win the Dutch Eredivisie title.
He, along with new chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale, will now select Everton’s new manager after the sacking of Sam Allardyce.
