Spain’s Roberto Martinez has been confirmed as the new Everton manager on a four-year deal.

The former Wigan manager, who is expected to bring with him assistants Graeme Jones and Kevin Reeves, will officially succeed David Moyes on July 1.

Martinez, 39, leaves Wigan after four years which ended with him winning the FA Cup but also getting relegated.

Everton finished sixth in the Premier League this season, which was their seventh consecutive top-eight finish.
