Everton have confirmed that manager Sam Allardyce has been relieved of his post after leading the Premier League outfit for only six months.

Sam Allardyce has been sacked by Everton hours after he slammed Everton over backroom restructure.

Sky Sports on Tuesday reported that the 63-year-old will be informed at a meeting with majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri as early as Wednesday that his services are no longer required as Moshiri reacts to fans' growing discontent with the former England manager.

Allardyce was not major shareholder Farhad Moshiri's first choice, but he failed to lure Marco Silva from Watford, an approach which contributed to the Portuguese's sacking when results at Vicarage Road took a nose dive after the Toffees were turned down.

Despite helping the club to an eighth-placed finish, the former England boss' brand of football was - like it has been for most of his career - pretty poor.

Since then, he has guided Crystal Palace and now Everton to Premier League safety in consecutive seasons, cementing his status as a so-called "firefighter" at struggling clubs.

Horford is not known for to be particularly animated, but even he admitted the contact crossed a line. Smart immediately got face-to-face with Smith to let him know he didn't appreciate the shove.

Everton have also been interested in Shakhtar Donetsk coach Paulo Fonseca, although he is also a contender to replace David Moyes at West Ham.

Allardyce last month dismissed a survey sent to supporters asking them to grade his performance out of 10 as a mistake on the part of the club's marketing director, who he said does not "understand" how football works.

According to reports, Allardyce will receive a £6 million pay-off from the Premier League club.

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 had said.

"I've done all that I can, the backroom staff have done all that they can, and the players have done all that they can".
