Walcott, Carroll, Benteke... 10 most likely Sam Allardyce signings

  • Sam Allardyce unveils Everton escape plan, including what to do with Wayne Rooney – before taking the job

At the time, Everton were chucking increasingly silly amounts of money at Watford in the vain hope of luring Marco Silva to Merseyside, with Allardyce withdrawing his application after tiring of the dilly-dallying.

Allardyce said: "I've always thought Everton was a great club".

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.

Former Under-23s manager David Unsworth took over on a caretaker basis in October following Ronald Koeman's dismissal but has been able to turn his side's fortunes around.

Palace chairman Steve Parish agreed to his departure and it is believed the south London club would receive a compensation package of around £2m if Allardyce takes a new job before next summer.

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.

A loss would see Everton sucked into the relegation zone.

Sam Allardyce is reportedly set to sign a two-and-a-half year deal at Goodison Park worth £12million, with the remit to ensure top-flight survival. 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.

Allardyce's reign will begin on Saturday when Everton host Huddersfield Town.

His achievements at the Stadium of Light - which look all the more impressive given what has happened since - earned him his dream job with England.
