Fleetwood Town can confirm Technical Director Grétar Steinsson has left his role at the club to join Premier League side Everton.
Grétar leaves Highbury after four seasons to become The Toffees’ new Chief European Scout, starting in his new role at Goodison Park with immediate effect.
Chief Executive Steve Curwood said: “Grétar has been valuable to work alongside over the last four years, and has supported the club in understanding greater detail around the medium to long-term planning across the elite performance areas of the club.
“He has supported the advancement of processes, as well as individual staff development across the club. His major input into the inception and growth of the academy – which recently received a glowing audit at the first attempt – will be very much remembered.
“The club is in a better place in many areas thanks to his involvement, and we look forward to building on our relationship in his new and exciting position at Everton.”
Everyone at the football club would like to thank Grétar for his work whilst at Fleetwood Town, and wish him all the best for the future.
