Everton set to hire Allardyce as manager after prolonged search

I've always thought Everton was a great club.

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.

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.

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.

Everton are now sitting 17th in the table, two points ahead of the Hammers.

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. But the chance to turn around Everton's faltering ship has lured him back, and Allardyce is expected to have a watching brief at Goodison Park on Wednesday night.

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.

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.

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

Everton's chief problem is clear to see.
