Marcel Brands has continued to transform Everton's recruitment department with the appointment Gretar Steinsson as the club's new chief European scout.

Martyn Glover, the club's chief scout who was appointed by Steve Walsh, now becomes Everton's chief UK scout.

He previously spent time back with AZ Alkmaar in a football operations capacity.

Steinsson has been technical director at ambitious League One club Fleetwod Town but takes up the role with the Blues with immediate effect.

Fleetwood chief executive Steve Curwood said: “Grétar has been valuable to work alongside over the last four years, and has supported the club in understanding greater detail around the medium to long-term planning across the elite performance areas of the club.

A former international colleague of Gylfi Sigurdsson and capped 46 times by Iceland, he was signed by Brands as a player at AZ Alkmaar in 2005 and the pair were together at the Dutch club for two-and-a-half successful years before Steinsson left for Bolton.

It is understood that Steinsson will manage a team of seven Euro scouts with the club having a presence in Spain and Portugal, two scouts in France, one in Italy, a Scandinavian scout and a talent spotter in South America.
