Everton are gearing up for their Premier League fixture against West Ham on Wednesday night.

However, Sky Sports are today claiming to be privy to the striking of a pact between Allardyce and the Toffees, a deal that will see current caretaker manager David Unsworth return to his role as head of the Under-23 side...

Lee previously served as Allardyce's assistant at both the Eagles and Bolton Wanderers as well as a brief spell with the England national team.

Allardyce has succeeded Ronald Koeman, who was sacked more than five weeks ago, and returned to management six months after leaving Crystal Palace.

However, after a few months out of the game and after much speculation, Allardyce clearly had a change of heart as he was finally announced as the new Everton boss on Thursday.

Former Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare will also join Everton's coaching staff as one of Allardyce's backroom coaches. "David Unsworth will remain in charge of the Blues for tonight's Premier League match against West Ham United at Goodison Park".

New color schemes being offered include E-Copper metallic and Donington Grey metallic, both with Frozen Grey metallic accents. The i8 roadster features a fabric soft top that can open or close in less than 16 seconds, at speeds up to 31 miles per hour .

Everton are now sitting 17th in the table, two points ahead of the Hammers.

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.

Everton were understood to have re-opened talks with Allardyce earlier this week following the 4-1 defeat to Southampton on Sunday.

The club's prospects had appeared so different at the beginning of the season with Everton having invested heavily following last season's impressive seventh-place finish.

Can Allardyce get Everton going? The team has already been eliminated from the Europa League, too.

Having spent heavy to bring in reinforcements over the summer, Everton have struggled to click this season; the Toffees now sit 17th in the Premier League, two points above the drop zone, and have already been dumped out of the Europa League, following a disastrous showing in the group stage. But that turned sour after only one match, with Allardyce stepping down in September 2016 following a newspaper sting.
