Everton fans can’t wait for the arrival of Marcel Brands

Everton fans are getting excited about the future after reports that Marcel Brands is set to join the club, and they hope it means the end of Steve Walsh’s recruitment.

According to Sky Sports, PSV technical director Marcel Brands will replace Steve Walsh as director of football at Everton this summer.

PSV are currently seven points clear at the top of Eredivisie, and Sky Sports claims Brands will leave the club once they are crowned as Dutch champions.

Everton fans hoped it would mean the end of Steve Walsh as director of football when the links to Brands surfaced last month, and now they’re getting excited about the switch.

Walsh has not been particularly successful since he was handed the role, and the influx of mostly disappointing signings last summer may have put the nail in his Everton coffin.

Brands is highly regarded in the Netherlands, having signed players like Davy Propper, Dreis Mertens and Georginio Wijnaldum before moving them along for tidy profits.

The 55 year-old is represented by super agent Mino Raiola and Everton hope the pair can bring in the type of talent needed to break into the top six.

Fans have been reacting to the news on Twitter, and some of the best reactions can be found below…
