Big Sam brought in to steady the ship at struggling Everton

The Goodison club has now confirmed on their official Twitter account that the ex-England boss is on the verge of being appointed as manager but David Unsworth will remain in charge against the Hammers on Wednesday.

At the time, Everton were chucking increasingly silly amounts of money at Watford in the vain hope of luring Marco Silva to Merseyside, with Allardyce withdrawing his application after tiring of the dilly-dallying.

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.

Sam Allardyce wants Sammy Lee to join his coaching setup at Everton.

When he left Selhurst Park in May, Allardyce said he had "no ambitions" to take another managerial job.

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.

Former Under-23s manager David Unsworth took over on a caretaker basis in October following Ronald Koeman's dismissal but has been able to turn his side's fortunes around.

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. They have conceded more than twice as many goals as they have scored having failed to replace leading scorer Romelu Lukaku following his summer departure for Manchester United.

The 63-year-old will manage his first match when Everton host Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
