Cottee: Everton will beat West Ham if they do one thing

Sam Allardyce Former England manager is the leading contender for Everton job

His snub means Everton will turn to former England manager Sam Allardyce to finally fill their managerial void.

Sam Allardyce is back in the frame to replace Koeman, with Everton seemingly hoping to bring in "Big Sam" to save them from relegation, as he has done with many clubs throughout his lengthy managerial career.

The Ukrainian champions' refusal to release Fonseca from the second year of his contract at Shakhtar follows a series of unsuccessful offers from Everton to buy compatriot Marco Silva out of his position at Watford.

Allardyce, 63, withdrew from contention to take over from Koeman after failing to receive an offer following talks earlier in November. "So I continue to do what I was asked to do five weeks ago".

He helped Crystal Palace and Sunderland respectively avoid relegation during the past two seasons and this makes him an ideal appointment considering the situation that Everton are now in.

Their squad is a mess and Unsworth has been powerless to halt the club's alarming decline, with Sunday's 4-1 hammering at Southampton increasing the Toffees' relegation fears.

"I have seen the names that have been bandied about - all top managers".

Allardyce is seen as a safe option who will keep Everton up, given his track record of saving clubs from the drop.

Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth expects to remain in charge for Wednesday's home game with West Ham but the pursuit of a permanent manager is nearing conclusion.

It's certainly not the strangest appointment Everton could make right now, as Pulis could look to stabilise the situation at the Merseyside club, strengthen the woeful defence and add to the side in January with whatever budget Farhad Moshiri has remaining. And I make that very clear to the players. It will be "you do what I tell you".

Although Allardyce's qualities as a coach versed in ensuring the Premier League survival of a series of troubled clubs has been pushed by sections of Everton's dysfunctional hierarchy, those behind the club's recent takeover have tried to avoid appointing an individual whose style of football and management does not mesh with their own vision for the club.

"When confidence is low, it takes a bit of time to build that back up".
