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

Sam Allardyce looks on from the stand during the Premier League match between Everton and West Ham United at Goodison Park

Majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright reportedly had different ideas on who should take over the job on a permanent basis and pursuits of Watford's Marco Silva and Burnley boss Sean Dyche failed, while Ireland manager Martin O'Neill was also heavily-linked.

Sam Allardyce will be at USM Finch Farm this afternoon to finalise terms on becoming the new manager of Everton Football Club.

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.

Allardyce has been out of work since resigning as Crystal Palace managerin May.

Poor old Everton. They sit in 16th place after a awful start to the season but supporters will be hoping serial Premier League survivalist Sam Allardyce can turn things around.

The club's fortunes haven't improved with the exit of Koeman, with Everton recording one win, one draw and five defeats in all competitions since Unsworth took the reins in late October.

Sam Allardyce is reportedly set to sign a two-and-a-half year deal at Goodison Park worth £12million, with the remit to ensure top-flight survival.

He previously held talks with the club's hierarchy only to announce he had withdrawn because he felt they were hesitating.
