Following the failed experiment of David Unsworth, Everton are set to name a new manager and, reports are claiming that former England manager Sam Allardyce is in pole position.
Allardyce had ruled himself out of the running for the position two weeks ago after it appeared not everybody was in line with the decision to name him as manager.
However, following their failed attempt to get Marcos Silva from Watford, it seem Allardyce is now top of a list of potential managers which includes Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neil and Sharktar Donestk manager Paulo Fonseca.
Caretaker manager David Unsworth claims he should be in charge of Wednesday’s game against West Ham despite reports that a new manager would be named before the visit of the Hammers.
Unsworth admitted that he understood the club was speaking to a few people and expected them to name a new permanent boss in a couple of days.
When asked about Sam Allardyce, the former Toffees defender hailed the former England manager as a top class coach but insisted it would be wrong for him to talk too much about the former Bolton boss.
