Everton has been linked with Brands for months but he had always stated he would only decide his future after the Eredivisie campaign finished.

On Wednesday, Brands departure from PSV was finally confirmed by the Eredivisie champions with the 56-year-old ending an eight-year spell with the Eindhoven club. Everton then confirmed his appointment on their website.

Brands said in a statement, “It is no straightforward challenge but this must be our motivation each and every day.

“It is only a challenge such as this which could have persuaded me to leave PSV where I am indebted to the many people whose collective effort led to some great achievements.

“Now we will look to build something really strong and lasting here at Everton.”

PSV have not decided on a replacement for Brands yet.
