David Unsworth has encouraged the public to give the next manager of Everton time and patience to build the club.

The Toffees announced that Allardyce will finalise terms at the club's USM Finch Farm training ground on Wednesday.

Barton has been a fierce critic of David Unsworth, during the 44-year-old boss's temporary spell in charge at Goodison Park.

Everton had been trying to tempt Watford boss Marco Silva to Merseyside, but the Toffees were ultimately unable to sign the Portuguese coach.

"I have no ambitions to take another job".

Everton have endured a dismal start to the season and are now 17th in the Premier League after just three wins in 13 matches.

Everton now sit one place above the Premier League relegation zone after 13 games, having lost four of their last seven league games. But the chance to turn around Everton's faltering ship has lured him back, and Allardyce is expected to have a watching brief at Goodison Park on Wednesday night.

Allardyce has been out of work since leaving Crystal Palace in May, his first role since stepping down as England manager by mutual consent in 2016 after two months in the job following allegations he offered advice on how to bypass rules on player transfers.

The club's prospects had appeared so different at the beginning of the season with Everton having invested heavily following last season's impressive seventh-place finish. They have conceded more than twice as many goals as they have scored having failed to replace leading scorer Romelu Lukaku following his summer departure for Manchester United. He will oversee the team's Saturday fixture against Huddersfield.
