Proven manager rejects Everton offer to leave coast clear for rival

Cottee: Everton will beat West Ham if they do one thing

But with Allardyce reluctant to return to management on a six-month contract, Everton are faced with the prospect of having to offer the former England manager a more long-term deal in order to persuade the 63-year-old to end his self-imposed exile from the game in the wake of his resignation at Crystal Palace during the summer.

Everton are moving closer to appointing Sam Allardyce as their new manager as talks continue to progress positively, BBC reports.

Sam Allardyce reportedly wants to reunite with Craig Shakespeare at Everton.

Sam Allardyce is back in the frame to replace Koeman, with Everton seemingly hoping to bring in "Big Sam" to save them from relegation, as he has done with many clubs throughout his lengthy managerial career.

Former Toffees defender Unsworth has been manning the fort for five weeks since Koeman was sacked but has picked up just one win from seven matches.

But anyone who's been in football or managed or coached will say: "'You don't want training-ground players, you want players you can rely on when that ball rolls at kick-off.' So I want players to stand up and take that responsibility for our great club and we have to do that quickly".

West Ham are ready to make a move for Krasnodar striker Fyodor Smolov, and, at the same time, according to the Liverpool Echo, Everton have been linked with a move for Besiktas playmaker Oguzhan Ozyakup, who was once dubbed "the new Zinedine Zidane".

"I don't think there's a quick fix in football".

"If you want to move on go and get a job in the Championship or League One".

"I don't think there's a secret ingredient where somebody just comes in and all of a sudden you start winning again".

"I have seen the names that have been bandied about - all top managers. He has to do that", added Moyes. And I make that very clear to the players.

"He won the league a year ago, they are up towards the top of the league and you look at the players Everton are bringing through, the Tom Davies' of the world, and a few more". But you would expect him to get Everton safe.

The Toffees will look to pick up a vital victory tomorrow night when they welcome West Ham to Goodison Park.
