According to The Times, Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is one of the names on Everton’s shortlist to replace the sacked Marco Silva.

After a difficult start to the campaign and a 5-2 loss to rivals Liverpool this week, Marco Silva departed Goodison Park.

Marcel Brands is now on the lookout for a new head coach and one of the names reportedly being considered is Ajax boss Erik ten Hag. Brands knows Ten Hag well from his time as PSV Eindhoven director but he isn’t the only one under consideration.

Mauricio Pochettino, Carlo Ancelotti, David Moyes, Marcelino, Vitor Pereira, Mikel Arteta and Leonardo Jardim are also candidates.

Ten Hag has recently been linked with Bayern Munich but said he would not leave Ajax before the end of the campaign.

It is unlikely that he will have changed his mind for the position at Everton.
