Sam Allardyce facing a sticky end as Everton plan Marco Silva move by Jack Fox Published

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.

Sam Allardyce has reiterated that he has not fallen out with Wayne Rooney and insists that he will not have a say on whether the Everton ace stays or goes.

Allardyce and his staff will be due substantial compensation when he makes his exit, while he has also collected a "substantial" end of season bonus after he guided Everton to an eighth place finish in the Premier League.

Allardyce has had a meeting with Moshiri penned in for a few days but his confidence in remaining at Everton has been waining over the past few weeks.

Allardyce said he was not "confident" about his long-term prospects after the Toffees ended their season with a 3-1 defeat at West Ham on Sunday.

"Then look at what I am doing at the same age - or you can wait until I am 63 years old, and then we can compare what I have done".

While Allardyce has done exactly what he set out to do and steer the club clear of relegation and into the top half of the table, the style of football on display has been a cause for much anger on the Blue half of Merseyside.

The Iranian-born British businessman is believed to have initially offered Allardyce a six-month contract to steady the ship at Everton and lead the club away from the drop zone after a horrendous start to a season with plenty of hope.

Appearing on Sky Sports on Monday, Allardyce admitted that he did not know what his future would hold beyond the meeting with Moshiri.

Silva was sacked by Watford in January following a downturn in results.

That would be Benfica, who would be offering the former Watford manager a job, as they expect their current boss Rui Vitória to go in the summer.
