Exclusive: Danny Mills drops Everton transfer reveal after sit-down Brands chat


Danny Mills has revealed Marcel Brands is looking for Everton first-team stars from the Premier League, overseas and even the club’s own youth sides.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England international explained he has entered the Goodison director of football’s inner sanctum and received transfer insight from sit-down chats.
Mills, whose son is in the Everton academy set-up, explained that Brands is not only scouting overseas but is regularly in attendance at the training sessions of Everton’s youth sides as he casts his net for new recruits at Goodison Park.

“Very good guy, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet him several times, sit down and have a chat with him,” Mills told Football Insider.

“Very impressed with him, he’s across everything, I guarantee it. I’ve been down at Finch Farm where he’s been watching the under-15s, watching the under-17s, watching the under-18s. 

“He’s across everything, yeah, it’s his job but as a technical director he’s looking for talent not just from abroad, from the Premier League or whatever, he’s looking within as well.” 

Brands has had another busy summer at Goodison Park, securing the permanent signing of Gomes after his loan spell at the club as well as bringing in the likes of Moise Kean and Fabian Delph from Juventus and Manchester City respectively.
