Change is coming
PSV Eindhoven have confirmed that director of football Marcel Brands has left the club to join Everton and take up a similar role on Merseyside.
The Dutchman is very highly rated in his homeland and has been pivotal in PSV’s recent history.
Brands has sealed the signings of several high profile figures such as Dries Mertens, Gini Wijnaldum and Kevin Strootman.
More recently, he has also signed top players such as Hirving Lozano who could even follow him to Goodison Park.
The Mexican has set the Eredivisie alight and a move to Merseyside is certainly not out of the question now.

With Brands arrival comes several changes to Everton football club and their structure.
The Dutchman will come in to replace Steve Walsh who has failed to impress during his time at the club.
Signings such as Davy Klaassen and Sandro Ramirez were the most disappointing and £150million spent in the summer actually took them backwards.
Now, the club will be looking for much better from Brands with the Dutchman also set to have a key role in their managerial search.
Sam Allardyce was sacked on Wednesday morning after fan protests over the past few months.
The former England boss guided the side to 8th in the Premier League but his football left an awful lot to be desired.
Now, Brands first job will be to get a new manager in and start planning for the new season as quickly as possible.
The loose timescale for the new manager search is now 10 days to a fortnight as Brands and Barrett Baxendale select a coach suited to the squad and a specific style of football in line with what #Everton fans want
