Everton set to part with Sam Allardyce this week

Everton management want Wayne Rooney to stay next season.

Everton fans have been angered by Allardyce's style of football while in charge of the Blues.

Sam Allardyce's unhappy reign as Everton manager is expected to end this week after he has face-to-face talks with Farhad Moshiri.

Everton remain interested in bringing Marco Silva to Goodison Park as Allardyce's replacement, but despite being now unemployed, appointing him as their manager still faces some challenges.

Allardyce, who has a year remaining on his 18-month contract, is set to discover his fate in the next few days after he revealed on Sky Sports News that he has a meeting scheduled with Farhad Moshiri, and in truth all signs point to an exit before the week it out.

Allardyce also said there were no developments with regards to Wayne Rooney's potential departure from Everton, with British media reports linking him with a move to Major League Soccer side DC United.

"I've dealt with Wayne, and it's moved on with his representatives and the board from here on in, which I believe may be Wednesday".

Allardyce seemed to accept his fate after the Toffees' final match of the season, a 3-1 defeat by West Ham, on Sunday.

Allardyce was appointed in November a year ago and managed to guide Everton to a top half finish, but inconsistent results and an uninspiring style of football have led to calls for his contract to be terminated at the end of the season.

Current CEO Robert Elstone is expected to leave Everton after 10 years at the commercial helm to take up a similar role heading up Rugby's Super League.

White's comment was never going to go down well with a fanbase that cares just as much about how the team plays as it does where they finish in the league.

"We've had a good season and the voices, who doesn't get stick as a manager?" Who knows what's going to happen next.
