"Evertonians are the most passionate and best fans in the world and when the club does badly we all suffer".

Sam Allardyce is set to complete a deal to become Everton's new manager later today, the club have confirmed.

Everton are now two points above the relegation zone going into Wednesday night's match against West Ham.

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".

Everton issued a holding tweet to say that Allardyce was expected at the training ground for talks but, even though contractual matters had long since been concluded, no official announcement came.

After his ill-fated spell in charge of England ended in 2016 - which lasted just one game - Big Sam joined Crystal Palace and successfully kept the Eagles up last season before stepping down back in May. That's hard when you're losing but the win last night over West Ham and the magnificent atmosphere around Goodison, which was just brilliant, well that's lifted everybody around the club.

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

The 63-year-old ex-England boss is the permanent successor to Ronald Koeman, who was sacked in October with the club 18th in the Premier League.

Everton have lost seven of their 14 league games this season and can not qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League after earning one point from their five Group E matches.

The club's fortunes haven't improved with the exit of Koeman, with Everton recording one win, one draw and five defeats in all competitions since Unsworth took the reins in late October. The team has already been eliminated from the Europa League, too. But, after taking four points from their first two games, Everton managed the same tally from their next seven fixtures and Koeman was sacked. A loss would see Everton sucked into the relegation zone.
