Sam Allardyce to attend Everton game against West Ham with appointment imminent

Sam Allardyce to attend Everton game against West Ham with appointment imminent

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.

Allardyce was due to attend the club's USM Finch Farm training complex this afternoon in order to complete the formalities of a deal that is reported to be worth £9m over 18 months.

David Unsworth will remain in charge of the Blues for tonight's Premier League match against West Ham United at Goodison Park.

But after leaving Crystal Palace just a few months ago, the 63-year-old revealed he would not consider another job in club football, and would only be interested in taking the reins of a national side in the future.

The Dudley-born manager has also earned a reputation as a survival specialist, where he performed miracles at clubs like Crystal Palace and Sunderland as he helped ensure their Premier League status.

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 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.

Everton were easy winners at Goodison Park last night.

After years of being unable to come close to matching the financial clout of the Premier League's big guns, Everton finally had significant backing thanks to new owner Farhad Moshiri.
