Sam Allardyce has signed an 18-month deal as new manager of premier league side Everton.
The Toffees have announced the appointment of the former England boss, more than six weeks after the dismissal of Ronald Koeman.
Allardyce, 63 years of age, has signed the dotted line on an 18-month deal, worth £9million, meaning he will earn more than the likes of Juventus manager Max Allegri, Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone, PSG chief Unai Emery and even Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.
The Blues’ principal shareholder Farhad Moshiri and director of football Steve Walsh were involved in intense negotiations with the former England manager’s representatives in London on Tuesday.
Allardyce was at Goodison Park to witness the crucial win against fellow strugglers West Ham, before taking charge against Huddersfield at the weekend.
