Everton end ties with Allardyce

The former England boss endured a fractious relationship with the club's hierarchy in recent weeks and was fuming after a re-structure of his backroom staff.

Everton have sacked manager Sam Allardcye after six months in charge.

Allardyce was sacked from his job as Everton manager on Wednesday morning and the club are expected to bring in former Watford boss Marco Silva to replace him in the coming days.

"We have made the decision that, as part of our longer-term plan, we will be appointing a new manager this summer", said new chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale.

"I can't quite say confident after all the rumours I'm reading in the paper", said Allardyce, when questioned about his future. "We'll wait and see when we meet up".

Allardyce stabilised the club and helped them finish the campaign in a respectable eighth position.

However, his style of football was never palatable to the Goodison Park faithful and there was palpable discontent towards Allardyce amongst the Everton supporters, despite him steering the club away from a probable relegation threat.

The report claims that the most likely scenario would be a suitable compensation figure reached for Everton to pay to their Premier League rivals.

Silva has been out of work since January when he lost his job at Watford, who blamed Everton's approaches for the Portuguese coach's downfall.

A change in manager could also affect Wayne Rooney's future at the club.

Asked about Everton's current situation, Stubbs told talkSPORT host Jim White: "I'm pretty sure they have someone in mind".

England's all-time top scorer had reportedly agreed terms on a £12.5 million move to DC United in Major League Soccer last week.

Allardyce, 63, was parachuted into the club in November after the woeful start by predecessor Ronald Koeman - and subsequent caretaker David Unsworth - which saw the Toffees languishing in 18th.
