Steinsson Appointed Everton's Chief European Scout

Grétar Steinsson has been appointed Everton’s Chief European Scout.

Steinsson joins Everton after working for nearly four years with Fleetwood Town where he was appointed Technical Director in January 2015. He will work closely with Director of Football Marcel Brands and Martyn Glover, the Club’s Chief UK Scout.

Steinsson played 126 matches in the English top flight during four-and-a-half years with Bolton Wanderers.

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.

Following his playing career Steinsson studied for a post-graduate degree in football management at the Johan Cruyff Institute in Holland.

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