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

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

Everton said in a statement: "Sam Allardyce will be at USM Finch Farm this afternoon to finalise terms on becoming the new manager of Everton Football Club".

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.

Palace chairman Steve Parish agreed to his departure and it is believed the south London club would receive a compensation package of around £2m if Allardyce takes a new job before next summer.

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.

The pair worked under the veteran Premier League manager during his most recent spell in management with Crystal Palace which ended in May.

Everton sit 17th in the Premier League, just two points out of the relegation zone, and have already been eliminated from contention for the Europa League knockout rounds after claiming just one point from five matches.

Everton have lost seven of their 14 league games this season and can not qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League after earning one point from their five Group E matches.

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

The club's prospects had appeared so different at the beginning of the season with Everton having invested heavily following last season's impressive seventh-place finish.

Everton's chief problem is clear to see.
