Allardyce's departure comes as little surprise as Marco Silva is already considered odds-on favourite for the job, with the Toffees having previously targeted him before turning to the former England boss.

The 63-year-old veteran coach will be paid an estimated £6m, which is a chunk of what he would have earned in the final 12 months of his contract.

Allardyce joined North End as a player in the summer of 1986 and was a key figure in the side which won promotion from the Fourth Division in the 1986/87 season.

'Once more, we might like to position on report our honest because of Sam for his work with us over the previous few months and want him effectively for the long run'.

Sam Allardyce has been sacked by Everton hours after he slammed Everton over backroom restructure.

Koeman was sacked with the club in 18th place, although by the time Allardyce took charge caretaker manager David Unsworth had steadied the ship and they were 13th.

Watford "remain furious" that Everton's interest past year unsettled Silva and a poor run of form led to his sacking in January.

He appeared to be the club's first choice last autumn when the vacancy first arose, yet the Hornets refused the 40-year-old permission to speak to the Merseyside club.

Everton's board exacted sweeping changes without Allardyce's input and the manager said he was "disgusted" at the failure to consult him.

Marco Silva and Paulo Fonseca are among the early candidates in line to replace Allardyce.

Silva not only has Premier League experience with Watford, but also with Hull City, although he was relegated with them in 2017.

Despite claiming he would not be keen to take another job in English football, Everton could provide the ideal platform for Arsene Wenger to bounce back into the game.
