Everton Set to Appoint Sam Allardyce

Job done Dominic Calvert Lewin fires in a shot to score Everton’s second goal

Everton have confirmed that former England manager Sam Allardyce is poised to be appointed manager.

The 63-year-old is expected to attend Everton's match at home to fellow Premier League strugglers West Ham tonight but with only a watching brief.

David Unsworth remains in caretaker charge as the Toffees face West Ham at Goodison Park at 20:00 GMT.

Everton were understood to have re-opened talks with Allardyce earlier this week following the 4-1 defeat to Southampton on Sunday.

Allardyce said: "I've always thought Everton was a great club".

"Fatigue may be a factor because it's such a short period of recovery time and looking at the load these players have had over the last few months... every month has been like Christmas because of the number of games", Allardyce said.


In the last January transfer window, Allardyce splashed the cash in order to reunite with left back Patrick van Aanholt, taking the Dutchman to Crystal Palace having worked with him at Sunderland.

David Unsworth has been in temporary charge since Ronald Koeman was sacked on October 23 and the under-23s boss had made clear his desire to take on the job permanently.

Having spent heavy to bring in reinforcements over the summer, Everton have struggled to click this season; the Toffees now sit 17th in the Premier League, two points above the drop zone, and have already been dumped out of the Europa League, following a disastrous showing in the group stage.

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. However, the club started poorly in both the Premier League and the Europa League. A loss would see Everton sucked into the relegation zone.

His achievements at the Stadium of Light - which look all the more impressive given what has happened since - earned him his dream job with England.
