Everton have announced the appointment of Martyn Margetson as first-team goalkeeping coach.
The 46-year-old has linked up again with Sam Allardyce, having worked under the club’s new boss at West Ham, Crystal Palace and with England.
Margetson, who won one cap for Wales during a playing career spent at Manchester City, Southend, Huddersfield and Cardiff, will be in the dugout for Saturday’s match at Bournemouth, Everton said.
He joins assistant manager Sammy Lee, first-team coaches Craig Shakespeare and Duncan Ferguson and performance director Ryland Morgans on Allardyce’s backroom staff.
Allardyce is unbeaten in his first seven games as Toffees manager but is already looking forward to adding to his squad in the January transfer window.
The former England boss has made the signing of a striker a priority next month, and remains keen on a £25million deal with Besiktas for Cenk Tosun.
Everton sent a delegation to Turkey on Friday, led by director of football Steve Walsh, to try to force through the deal amid interest from elsewhere in Europe.
A striker and two full-backs remain the manager’s January priorities, with a deal for Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, who played for him at Blackburn, only likely if he can sell first to create room in his squad.
