CONFIRMED: Everton on the Verge of appointing Sam Allardyce as manager.
Everton are moving closer to appointing Sam Allardyce as their new manager as talks continue to progress positively.
Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth is expected to take charge of Wednesday night’s Premier League home meeting with West Ham United.
But the club may even be in a position to confirm Allardyce as Ronald Koeman’s successor before that game.
Allardyce may even take the bold step of appointing former Liverpool midfield man Sammy Lee as one of his assistants.
Lee worked with Allardyce when he was at Bolton Wanderers, Crystal Palace, and England.
It would be, however, a contentious decision and sure to raise eyebrows among Everton fans given Lee’s strong association with Liverpool as a player through their 1980s successes, and also as a previous long-serving member of the Anfield backroom staff.
