It has been reported by the British tabloid that Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri will pay up on the remaining year of Allardyce’s contract worth £6 million.
The former West Ham United and Newcastle United manager’s assistant, Sammy Lee, will also leave Goodison Park, according to the report.
Music to Everton fans’ ears
Allardyce has done the job he was supposed to do - and that is to keep Everton to keep in the Premier League this season.
The Toffees are set to finish in the top half of the league table this season, and given how they started the campaign, it has to be considered a success.
Everton fans, though, want the team to play good and attractive football, and they must be delighted if Allardyce leaves Goodison Park this summer.
The football that the Toffees have played under Allardyce, even at home, has not been very easy on the eye.
It will be interesting to see who takes over at Everton should Allardyce leave.
