Sam Allardyce agrees Everton deal

Sam Allardyce has agreed to become the new manager of Everton, after they agreed to a long-term deal.

Everton first Allardyce not long after Ronald Koeman was fired more than a month ago, but they wanted the former England boss on a deal until the end of the season – something which ‘Big Sam’ was not happy with.

The Toffees then tried and failed to land Watford’s Marco Silva, so they returned for Allardyce and agreed to his demands of a longer contract.

They also agreed to bring on his own staff which is set to include Craig Shakespeare as his number two, although they had also considered offering a role to Notts County boss Kevin Nolan – who spent a number of years playing under Allardyce.

Bookmakers have suspended betting on Allardyce, after it emerged he had agreed terms.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s taken a while, and we’ve seen plenty head this market, but it looks like Everton have finally found their man.

“And with a return to the Prem seemingly imminent for Big Sam, we’re taking no more chances – and no more bets.”
