The pair worked together at Hull City a few years ago and Walsh has now brought his former colleague to Finch Farm where he will take on the role of senior recruitment co-ordinator.
A technical analyst of players' strengths and weaknesses, Stewart was until recently Head of Performance Analysis at the Etihad Stadium and has experience working for the England national team during the 2014 World Cup and is expected to bring his organisational and scouting expertise to Everton.

This is becoming a Moneyball business. Gone are the days when a player could be bought by just the manager and his judgement.
I for one could have told you that Mr Bolasie was too inconsistent for a side hoping to challenge at the top end... And as for Sunderland's Kone, steer well clear of that one. Should I be given a job too?
Go on... Giz a job.

Everything they do is criticised and ridiculed.
After 20 years of Kenwright and cronies, I welcome any change that is aimed at bringing us success.

"Great." I said, "how much of a rise am I getting?"
"Oh you'll be on the same money but the title will look good on your CV"
"Thanks, me mam will be made up with that." l told him; same job, new title.

Don't you think that it now looks like Moshiri and his cronies, but with Kenwright still there? We've never needed a Director of Football (thought that is what we've always known as a 'manager'), now we have a senior recruitment co-ordinator!
It seems to me that there is too much money to burn in this sordid 'sport' and too many chiefs; it's just a pity that the taxpayer is being cheated by some companies who create second-rate schools, community projects and unnecessary well-paid posts to fritter money away and save paying their dues.

And no, I haven't seen any plans or a single brick... what I have seen is a majority shareholder who is a million (billion) times more likely to get us a brand spanking new home than the last regime and your comments only strengthen my view that there will be some on here (probably you included) who will complain about it not being a 60,001-seater.
To take your comment on strange decisions and comments ,give me Koeman and Moshiri every day of the week over Martinez's and Kenwright's mumblings... now there was a soap opera!

My Dad was a "Private Property Nocturnal Domestic Appliance Re-locator"
He was a burglar.

The system is not working for us fans, who pay their wages and support the team. Fortunately the world is changing in our favour and we can make a move like the Brexits and Trumps and just do whatever the hell we want.
Let's make Everton great again!

" (Martyn) Glover occupies the role as Chief Scout at Finch Farm, having spent time working alongside Walsh earlier in their careers at Sunderland.
“They are really good people and I'm really happy to have them here at the Club,” said Walsh.
“I worked with Laurence previously at Hull City and he brings a great depth of technical knowhow, experience and overall knowledge.
“The same with Martyn who has been at Blackburn Rovers, West Ham, Leeds and Sunderland.
“They are really good guys to have on board.”
... and this doesn't smack of nepotism ?
On the basis of what we're being told these guys don't seem to be the inspirational appointments. Hull, Leeds & Sunderland FFS, is that what we now aspire to?

Plainly we have added professional depth to the recruitment process.
This has to be a positive move.
Anyone criticising needs to identify who would better – otherwise stop drinking and talking bullshit.

I hope you are correct about these additions to the scouting set-up. Hand on your heart had you heard of this new scout/ analyst before, or even Steve Walsh, before Leicester came to prominence last season?
I heard Everton payed £2M compensation to Leicester for Walsh, paper talk I know, but if true we should be destined to see some great signings in the near future.
