Sam Allardyce: Everton to name ex-England manager as boss

Sam Allardyce: Everton to name ex-England manager as boss

Sam Allardyce will finalise terms on a deal to become Everton manager on Wednesday, the Premier League club have confirmed.

With Unsworth overseeing his final match at home to West Ham tonight, Allardyce's first game in charge will be against Huddersfield Town at Goodison Park this Saturday.

Is Sam Allardyce the right man for the Everton job? But, after Everton's pursuit of Watford boss Marco Silva was met with a firm rebuttal from Vicarage Road, the club returned to Allardyce.

At that time, Allardyce stated that he had "no ambitions to take another job".

Allardyce has been out of management since his surprise decision to quit Crystal Palace at the end of last season, having succeeded in a six-month mission to keep them in the top-flight. But the chance to turn around Everton's faltering ship has lured him back, and Allardyce is expected to have a watching brief at Goodison Park on Wednesday night.

Everton are now two points above the relegation zone going into Wednesday night's match against West Ham.

Under-23 team manager Unsworth had taken temporary charge, but recent heavy defeats ended any lingering hopes that the former Blues' defender would get the role on a full-time basis. But his seven-game tenure has been little short of disastrous, with Everton losing five games and winning just one.

Everton, now 17th in the table, have won just one of the seven games under Unsworth, losing five, and fan opinion turned sharply with their last two outings - a 5-1 home loss to Atalanta and a 4-1 reverse at Southampton. But, after taking four points from their first two games, Everton managed the same tally from their next seven fixtures and Koeman was sacked. A loss would see Everton sucked into the relegation zone.

The Toffees spent more than £130m on new players in the summer but have struggled without last season's top scorer Romelu Lukaku, who was sold to Manchester United for £75m in July.

He previously held talks with the club's hierarchy only to announce he had withdrawn because he felt they were hesitating.
