“PSV is still working behind the scenes on famous brands”

PSV is still working behind the scenes on the arrival of Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite. The Eindhovens Dagblad reports this on Wednesday evening.
Multiple sources tell the newspaper that Branthwaite is the first option for the PSV centre-back position, although there are other candidates as well. According to the ED and The Daily Mail, PSV can take over the 20-year-old defender on rent.
Branthwaite is a well-known of PSV director Marcel Brands, who knows him from his time at Everton. At the Liverpool club, he was director of football. As far as is known, there is no deal between PSV and Everton, but the Eindhoven club is in pole position.
Branthwaite was acquired by Everton from Blackburn Rovers last year. His contract continues until the summer of 2025, but Everton has an option to add another year to that.
