Tottenham announce appointment of Gretar Steinsson as new performance director

 Tottenham have formally announced the appointment of Gretar Steinsson as new performance director.

The former Iceland international, who played for Bolton during his playing career, has joined Spurs from his role as technical advisor with the Icelandic FA.

Steinsson spent just two months with AZ before becoming technical director of Fleetwood Town, where he served for over three-and-a-half years ahead of his 2018 switch to Everton to become head of recruitment and development.

The 40-year-old will now be working closely with managing director of football Fabio Paratici in north London.

So far this summer, Tottenham have signed Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma and more recently forward Richarlison for £60million.
