Everton have confirmed that Sam Allardyce is to become their new manager.
Caretaker boss David Unsworth will remain in charge for Wednesday's key clash against West Ham, with Allardyce due to be in the hotseat for the first time against Huddersfield on Saturday.
Everton said in a statement:
Sam Allardyce will be at USM Finch Farm this afternoon to finalise terms on becoming the new manager of Everton Football Club.
David Unsworth will remain in charge of the Blues for tonight's Premier League match against West Ham United at Goodison Park.
Former England boss Allardyce ruled himself out of the running earlier this month, claiming he did not feel the Toffees were convinced he was the right man.
But, after Everton's pursuit of Watford boss Marco Silva was met with a firm rebuttal from Vicarage Road, the club returned to Allardyce.
This will be the 10th English club managerial position of the 63-year-old's career, with Allardyce most recently having guided Crystal Palace to safety last season.
When he left Selhurst Park in May, Allardyce said he had "no ambitions" to take another managerial job.
But the chance to turn around Everton's faltering ship has lured him back, and Allardyce is expected to have a watching brief at Goodison Park on Wednesday night.
