Updated Marcel Brands admits that it would be hard for him to walk away from his project at PSV Eindhoven as speculation persists that he could join Everton.

The Dutchman has been basking the Eredivisie title that PSV secured yesterday by beating rivals Ajax and he was asked about his future as their technical director in the aftermath of the game.

“All the scouts were here today, they had to experience it," Brands told Fox Sports in the Netherlands, "but tomorrow we will work on the selection of 2018/2019.

"If I am there myself? I still have a contract, but there is a lot of interest. It is very difficult for me to leave this beauty.

“I'm not going to wait too long and will soon make a decision,” he said separately. “The decision has not yet been taken. It is difficult to leave all of this behind. At PSV I work with people who I have cherished for years. I know what I have here.”

Brands has been the subject of interest from Everton who want to bring him into their staff, either alongside or in place of current Director of FootbalL, Steve Walsh.

PSV General Manager, Toon Gerbrands, confirmed last week that the Blues were in contact with the 55-year-old but expressed his hopes that Brands would stay to continue his success at Philips Stadion.
