According to Diario de Noticias in Portugal, Luis Boa Morte has penned a two-year deal to become Everton's new assistant coach.

Marco Silva had been working with Joao Pedro Sousa at Goodison Park, but he's recently lost his right-hand man after the end of the Premier League season.

Sousa has become a manager in his own right with Portuguese top flight side Famalicao, leaving Silva with a major hole to fill in his coaching staff.

 

Reports over the weekend suggested that ex-Premier League winger Boa Morte was a major candidate for the job, and it seems that a deal is now on the verge of completion.

Portuguese newspaper Diario de Noticias report that Boa Morte has now agreed a two-year deal to join Everton as Silva's new assistant coach, with the Toffees moving quickly to strike a deal.

Boa Morte, 41, is currently working as Maccabi Haifa's assistant, after managing Sintrense and Portimonense Under-23's, whilst he even had a stint as a scout with former club Arsenal.

Many will remember Boa Morte for his time with Arsenal, Southampton, Fulham and West Ham as a player, but Silva knows him from Sporting in Portugal; the pair coached together at the club in the 2014-15 season.

Now, they'll seemingly reunite at Goodison park in a move that few would have predicted even a week ago.
