Sam Allardyce to be named new Everton manager in next 48 hours

Sam Allardyce looks on from the stand during the Premier League match between Everton and West Ham United at Goodison Park Sam Allardyce unveils Everton escape plan, including what to do with Wayne Rooney – before taking the job

One of Allardyce's first acts as Everton manager will be to install former Liverpool stalwarts Lee and Ryland Morgans to his newly-formed ranks.

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.

His first game will be at home to Huddersfield on Saturday, and he will no doubt want to cap his first game off with a victory.

U23 boss David Unsworth was named caretaker on a short-term basis but the former Everton defender has struggled to improve results over the past month.

The news comes after Everton failed in their attempts to hire Watford manager Marco Silva, with Burnley's Sean Dyche, Shakhtar Donetsk's Paulo Fonseca and Ireland's Martin O'Neill among the names also linked to the job.

Allardyce, 63, watched from the stands as Wayne Rooney scored a hat-trick in Everton's 4-0 thrashing of West Ham United on Wednesday and takes over with the side 13th in the table, five points above the drop zone. It is a massive six-pointer for both sides.

Everton have endured a dismal start to the season and are now 17th in the Premier League after just three wins in 13 matches.

The Toffees were expected to perform well this term thanks to the amount of spending the club made during the offseason.

Allardyce is best known for his work at Bolton, where he took the club from England's second tier all the way to the Europa League during his eight year stint at the club. The bad start cost Ronald Koeman his job on October 23.
