Everton have confirmed Sam Allardyce has left his role as manager.

The former Sunderland and England boss only took over at Goodison in November, while the club was battling relegation.

Big Sam had a meeting with Merseyside the club's owner - with reports earlier suggesting he's about to be replaced in the job after just six months.

It is as Everton FC have announced a restructuring of their board.

Some Toffees fans have been unhappy, despite finishing 8th in the Premier League.

Everton say they are grateful for what he's done - but that they're looking to appoint a new manager this summer as part of a longer-term plan.

Ex-Watford boss Marco Silva has been heavily linked with replacing Allardyce at Goodison Park.
