Sean Dyche set to be named new Everton manager
Sean Dyche is expected to be appointed the next manager of Everton.
According to reports, Everton are set to appoint Sean Dyche as their next manager following the departure of Frank Lampard.
Lampard was fired earlier this week, and Everton has spent the previous few days interviewing potential replacements, including former Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa.
Bielsa was reportedly interested in the Everton position, and earlier this week he went from South America to England for another round of negotiations. However, sources now indicate that the Toffees have chosen Dyche over Bielsa.
Although Bielsa was fascinated by the prospect of taking over another defunct powerhouse like Everton, he had reservations about the club’s plan and, following another round of talks, has now been eliminated from consideration.

- Anthony Gordon misses Everton training to force transfer
- Frank Lampard speaks out about his dismissal from Everton, with Marcelo Bielsa in talks to replace him.
Everton had discussed hiring Real Madrid assistant Davide Ancelotti, the brother of Blancos manager and former Everton manager Carlo, but Dyche has been chosen instead by those in power at Goodison.
Dyche has been jobless since leaving Burnley in April. The Clarets terminated his ten-year tenure at the club after making an ultimately unsuccessful effort to avoid relegation.
By Friday, Everton wanted to replace Lampard, so they intensified their negotiations over a series of meetings on Thursday.
Dyche is expected to be appointed imminently and will then have a week to work with his new side ahead of his first match in charge – a visit from Premier League leaders Arsenal on Saturday 4 February.
