Sam Allardyce will finalise a deal to become Everton manager on Wednesday.The 63-year-old ex-England boss will become the permanent successor to Ronald Koeman, who was sacked in October with the club 18th in the Premier League.

Palace chairman Steve Parish agreed to his departure and it is believed the south London club would receive a compensation package of around £2m if Allardyce takes a new job before next summer.

The former England, Newcastle, Sunderland and Limerick FC boss will take charge of the Toffees for the first time time in Saturday's Premier League clash at home to Huddersfield.

Current interim manager David Unsworth will resume his role as Everton's under-23 coach.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire" where tectonic plates collide, causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity. These included flights operated by KLM, Qantas, AirAsia, and Virgin. "This hasn't endangered any flights", he said.

When asked about Allardyce, Unsworth said: "Sam is a top manager, but I think it would be wrong of me to talk about individuals.I have seen the names that have been bandied about - all top managers". But the chance to turn around Everton's faltering ship has lured him back, and Allardyce is expected to have a watching brief at Goodison Park on Wednesday night.

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.

Allardyce has been out of work since resigning as Crystal Palace managerin May.

That victory, when the Toffees came from two down late on to secure a 3-2 victory over Watford, looked like it might be a turning point. But that turned sour after only one match, with Allardyce stepping down in September 2016 following a newspaper sting.
