Sam Allardyce Confirmed As The New Manager Of Everton

Everton are set to appoint Sam Allardyce as their new manager following progress in talks on Tuesday, according to Sky sources.
Allardyce replaces Dutchman Ronald Koeman, who was sacked last month after the Merseyside club dropped into the relegation zone.
Lee is a supporter of Everton's bitter local rivals Liverpool and, as well as being a player for the Reds, he was once a part of the coaching staff at Anfield, arriving there in 2008 to serve as assistant manager to Rafa Benitez.
An agreement could not be reached at the time but, after Everton failed with an attempt for Watford boss Marco Silva, progress was made over the key aspect of the length of a contract for Allardyce earlier this week.
Everton are now two points above the relegation zone going into Wednesday night's match against West Ham.
Allardyce has been out of work since leaving Crystal Palace in May.
"I've always thought Everton was a great club".

However, Allardyce did watch his side dismantle West Ham 4-0 at Goodison Park on Wednesday night, courtesy of a Wayne Rooney hat-trick, so there is reason to be optimistic.
At that time, Allardyce stated that he had "no ambitions to take another job".
Everton's successful Under-23 coach David Unsworth has been in temporary charge since Koeman's departure and had some support to be appointed full-time but has won just won and lost five of his seven games at the helm. So with that in mind it's no wonder Everton are throwing a lot of money at a manager who's never been relegated. The team has already been eliminated from the Europa League, too.
His first game will be at home to Huddersfield on Saturday, and he will no doubt want to cap his first game off with a victory.
Further forward, Allardyce will need to get Everton scoring more, something the team has struggled to do since selling Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United for 75 million pounds ($97 million) during the summer.
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.
