He revealed how the director of football has become involved in all aspects of the club rather than just player recruitment.

“The guy before me was really involved in recruitment. I am involved in all departments.”

Brands announces how Everton plan to target signing new players

Finally, the director of football has revealed how the Toffees will target new players in the summer.

He claims that players under the age of 25 are what the club will be looking to sign.

Brands added:

“All the players we brought into the club in the summer we under 25.

“We don’t want to invest big money in older players.

“We are looking at players aged 20-25/26.”
