EXCLUSIVE: Everton want this man as their director of football

Royle, 67, helped David Unsworth take charge of the team for the final game of the season against Norwich City.

He remains popular with Everton fans and is seen as the ideal candidate to provide a link between the board and the new manager.

But the final say on whether he ends up in the role may depend on who ends up replacing Martinez in the manager’s chair.

Everton have made an ambitious approach to try and lure Jose Mourinho, who is holding out for the United job.
