The 63-year-old is expected to attend Everton's match at home to fellow Premier League strugglers West Ham tonight but with only a watching brief.

He added: "We've got to give thanks to David Unsworth".

"David Unsworth will remain in charge of the Blues for tonight's Premier League match against West Ham United at Goodison Park".

Allardyce has been out of management since his surprise decision to quit Crystal Palace at the end of last season, having succeeded in a six-month mission to keep them in the top-flight.

Despite pressing forward in an attempt to get themselves back into the affair, West Ham were unable to fashion any clear chances before the break, Aaron Cresswell whipped in a risky free kick on the stroke of half time, but Kenny headed that behind confidently, and when the subsequent corner was cleared by the Everton defence, it was the home side who took a two goal lead into the dressing room at half time.

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

However, Sky Sports are today claiming to be privy to the striking of a pact between Allardyce and the Toffees, a deal that will see current caretaker manager David Unsworth return to his role as head of the Under-23 side... But his seven-game tenure has been little short of disastrous, with Everton losing five games and winning just one.

But they have lost their last two matches 5-1 to Atalanta and 4-1 against Southampton, taking the tally of goals Everton have conceded this season in all competitions to 46. They have conceded more than twice as many goals as they have scored having failed to replace leading scorer Romelu Lukaku following his summer departure for Manchester United. I took over Palace in a similar situation and took them from relegation to 10th.
