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

Klopp Buries Hatchet With Allardyce

The Toffees announced that Allardyce will finalise terms at the club's USM Finch Farm training ground on Wednesday.

U23 boss David Unsworth was named caretaker on a short-term basis but the former Everton defender has struggled to improve results over the past month.

Former England boss Sam Allardyce is being strongly linked with the vacancy and talks are said to be taking place between the club and his representatives.

A salary close to the £6 million per season that Koeman earned is understood to have been agreed as the 63-year-old prepares to take the reins at Goodison Park.

Allardyce has been out of work since leaving Crystal Palace in May, his first role since stepping down as England manager by mutual consent in 2016 after two months in the job following allegations he offered advice on how to bypass rules on player transfers.

Everton have endured a dismal start to the season and are now 17th in the Premier League after just three wins in 13 matches.

Everton are now 17th in the table and have won just one of seven games in all competitions under Unsworth, who is the club's under-23s manager.

Despite claiming a 3-2 win over Watford, the Merseyside club suffered defeats to Leicester City (2-0) and Southampton (4-1) in the league while also crashing out of the Europa League thanks to humiliating losses at the hands of Lyon (3-0) and Atalanta (5-1).

Allardyce's reign will begin on Saturday when Everton host Huddersfield Town.

The Toffees hierarchy will feel they have gone for a safe pair of hands, with Allardyce having taken over both Palace and Sunderland in graver situations and led them to safety.
