ROUND SIGNS

ROUND SIGNS

Everton can confirm Steve Round has joined the club as assistant manager.

The announcement follows several days of negotiations between the Toffees and Round's former employers Newcastle United.

Round had been first team coach at the North East club before linking up with David Moyes at Everton.

Despite being only 37, he has an impressive record that includes stints with Middlesbrough and England.

Everton boss Moyes had been operating without an assistant since Alan Irvine departed for Preston in November of last year.

Reserve team manager Andy Holden, first team coach Jimmy Lumsden and goalkeeping coach Chris Woods assisted Moyes in the second half of last season.

Round, who began his coaching career at Derby, was at Finch Farm on Friday as he began life at his new club.

He exclusively told evertonTV: "Once David asked me, and I met him, it was a definite.

"He sold me the club; he sold me the ideas; he sold me how he was moving it forward and how he wanted to take the next step.

"I said I would definitely come and here we are."

The first part of an exclusive interview with the newest member of David Moyes' backroom staff is available to view now on evertonTV.

Jon ThainAdmittedly I don't know much about Roundy, but if DM thinks he's good enough, then thats fine by me. In Moyes We Trust!...................COYB!!! PS.. Sign up Fernandes, he improved as the season went on, and would be worth triple what we'll pay for him in a few years from now. Show me the Manny!

Chris RigbyHaving met Alan Irvine then Steve Round will definitely have a tough act to follow, of course technical ability is important but so is the character of the man, and Alan was a gentleman. But I trust Moyes' judgment and I wish Steve the best of luck at The Peoples Club.
