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

SportPesa's tweet added: "Sam Allardyce is set to become the new Everton manager!".

However, after a few months out of the game and after much speculation, Allardyce clearly had a change of heart as he was finally announced as the new Everton boss on Thursday.

Unsworth has won just two of his seven games in charge at Everton, but last night's win was a fine way to sign off.

Eventually Allardyce, who left Crystal Palace at the end of last season, became the frontrunner and he joins despite insisting in the past that only an global job would bring him back into management.

Allardyce replaces Dutchman Ronald Koeman, who was sacked last month after the Merseyside club dropped into the relegation zone.

Former Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare will also join Everton's coaching staff as one of Allardyce's backroom coaches. Unsworth is to take the team for tonight's match.

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.

Allardyce re-emerged as the leading contender for the job this week after Everton were forced to accept defeat in their attempts to persuade Watford to part with Marco Silva. So with that in mind it's no wonder Everton are throwing a lot of money at a manager who's never been relegated.

Is Sam Allardyce the right man for the Everton job?

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.

His first game in charge is against Huddersfield on Saturday.

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.
