Dyche expected to be appointed Everton manager

Sean Dyche is expected to be appointed Everton manager on Friday.

Former Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa and Dyche both held talks with the club on Thursday, with the former spotted in London for negotiations with the Everton board.

But it seems the former Burnley manager has won the race to succeed Frank Lampard at Goodison Park.

On Thursday night, Bielsa - who was Farhad Moshiri's first-choice option to replace Lampard - had a long meeting with the Toffees owner.

While the Argentine coach impressed, it is thought he would need a summer to get the Everton team into the shape that he would've liked.

On the other hand, it was felt Dyche could hit the ground running. The former Burnley manager knows three or four of the Everton players well and the stability those relationships brought was a deciding factor.
