EVERTON HAVE CONFIRMED Sam Allardyce as their new manager on an 18-month deal.

The 63-year-old watched Everton destroy West Ham at Goodison Park last night, and will take charge of his seventh Premier League club in Everton when he takes training tomorrow.

The deal was agreed on Tuesday in London, with Allardyce returning from a holiday in Dubai to meet his new squad at the club’s Finch Farm base.

Sammy Lee and former Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare will form part of the Englishman’s backroom team, as well as goalkeeping coach Martyn Margetson and head of fitness Ryland Morgans.

Toffees legend Duncan Ferguson will continue to manage the U23s.

The former England manager will reportedly earn £6 million per year.

Allardyce recently criticised the Premier League’s attitude towards homegrown managerial talent, but his appointment sees him become the ninth British manager currently operating in England’s top flight.

None of the nine have won a major trophy.
