'However, we have made the decision that, as part of our longer-term plan, we will be appointing a new manager this summer and will be commencing this process immediately.

However, his style of football was never palatable to the Goodison Park faithful and there was palpable discontent towards Allardyce amongst the Everton supporters, despite him steering the club away from a probable relegation threat.

Marco Silva, the former Watford manager who Everton targeted after sacking Ronald Koeman, is believed to be the frontrunner to become the club's new manager.

Alan Stubbs has warned Everton they "can't afford to get it wrong again" after deciding to sack Sam Allardyce and begin searching for their third permanent manager in two years. During his tenure, the club was also forced to apologise to Allardyce last month for a survey that was sent to fans asking them to rank their manager's performance on a scale of 0 to 10. The club made the announcement while the former England boss was at the League Manager's Association 26th Annual Awards in London.

Big money transfers always do make the headlines, and as such let me enlighten you on those big money transfer deals that did cost Everton a small fortune recently, but also let you know just which other players they transferred in and out along with players that went out on loan too.

Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale was promoted to chief executive and Allardyce said he was "disgusted" not to have been informed.

'I'm shocked, disappointed and disgusted that the football club didn't have the decency to tell me, my Director of Football and my staff about the changes, ' he told Metro.

Allardyce, who passed 1,000 games in charge of an English club in January, said he was "disgusted" by the club's decision to make the changes public without his knowledge, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Asked about Everton's current situation, Stubbs told talkSPORT host Jim White: "I'm pretty sure they have someone in mind".
