Everton have today announced that Ronald Koeman has been appointed as the clubs new manager.
The Dutchman moves to Goodison Park after agreeing a three year deal, thought to be worth in the region of £6million-a-year.
He replaces former Blues boss Roberto Martinez at the club, after the Spaniard was sacked last month after a disappointing spell.
In a statement on the club’s website, Koeman said:
I am very excited to be Everton manager. I believe in the Club, in the team, in the fans and in our ability to achieve things in the future.
Everton is a club with a great history and real ambition and it is a proud feeling for me to be part of what we want to go and do, together with the Chairman and Farhad Moshiri.
I am looking forward to meeting everyone at the Club and to preparing for a big season in the Premier League.
Koeman moves to Everton after spending two years in the Premier League at Southampton.
He is the only man to ever have both played and managed at all of the big three clubs in The Netherlands, Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord.
