Sam Allardyce to leave Everton with Marco Silva set to join
Sam Allardyce will leave Everton in the next 24 hours, according to reports.
Former Watford manager Marco Silva is Everton’s preferred replacement and Allardyce will be told that his six-month stay at the club will end in a meeting with chairman Farhad Moshiri on Wednesday.
Everton tried to bring Silva to the club last November but Watford rejected an approach worth £12m.
Silva was then sacked in January, with Watford citing an “unwarranted approach by a Premier League rival” that caused “significant deterioration in both focus and results to the point where the long-term future of Watford FC has been jeopardised”.
Allardyce guided Everton to eighth in the Premier League this season and lost just nine of 26 games in charge.
