Sam Allardyce confirmed as Everton manager in estimated £9m deal

Everton have confirmed that Sam Allardyce is the club’s new manager, agreeing an 18-month deal.
The job comes less than a year after Allardyce announced his ‘retirement’ on leaving his role at Crystal Palace.
The Toffees sacked Ronald Koeman last month, but the experiment of putting David Unsworth in temporary charge has not worked out.
After failing to secure reported high-profile targets such as Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone, Everton have turned to Allardyce.
The Toffees tweeted on Wednesday to say Allardyce was due at Finch Farm later that day to finalise his deal, and they have confirmed the deal after caretaker Unsworth oversaw Everton’s 4-0 hammering of West Ham on Wednesday night.
Allardyce’s first match in charge will see him face Huddersfield Town at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Farhad Moshiri, Everton’s majority shareholder, has been quoted on Twitter by Jim White of Talksport as saying: “I really want to give him the support he needs. He can go as far as he wants. We need a strong leader, he gives us that.”
Allardyce will bring Sammy Lee and Craig Shakespeare with him and will earn £9 million over an 18-month contract.
