Everton set to axe Sam Allardyce and snap up Marco Silva

  • Everton FC injury news Wayne Rooney to miss final game of the season due to minor knee injury

"F*** off Sam Allardyce", Everton fans sung during the 3-1 defeat to West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Sky Sports News understands Allardyce is due to meet Everton's majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri on Wednesday and will be told his six-month reign has come to an end.

The former England boss, whose has another year left on his contract, took charge in November and guided the club out of the bottom half of the Premier League to an eight-placed finish, though Everton's style of play under the 63-year-old has not been to everyone's liking.

Moshiri is now expected to reach a settlement on the final year of Allardyce's deal before moving quickly to appoint his successor.

Watford cited Everton's interest in their decision to part with the Portuguese coach in January, claiming an "unwarranted approach by a Premier League rival".

Former Watford manager Marco Silva is the front-runner to succeed Big Sam, but a legal dispute with his former club could throw a spanner in the works. Current Shakhtar Donetsk manager Paulo Fonseca is the favourite to replace Moyes.

Silva's possible arrival at Everton is complicated by the fact he is still involved in a wrangle with Watford over compensation for his dismissal.

Rooney is believed to have already said his goodbyes at Everton's Finch Farm training ground last Friday ahead of a proposed £12m move to DC United.

Star man: Wayne Rooney led the way in the goals column (10, all of which we scored before Christmas), but just about every statistical metric available pegged him as one of Everton's worst-rated players this season.

BBC reports Elstone's replacement will be deputy chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale, who in 2014 received an MBE for her role in spearheading the club's successful charity arm.
