Sam Allardyce to be named as England Coach


Sam Allardyce will be named as the new manager of England, with confirmation expected on Thursday.

He will leave Sunderland after nine months at the Premier League club.

Allardyce replaces Roy Hodgson, who quit in June after the surprise defeat by Iceland in the last 16 of Euro 2016.


The 61-year-old, who has also managed West Ham, Newcastle, Bolton and Notts County, spoke to the Football Association last week and has been chosen ahead of Hull's Steve Bruce.

The only remaining issue to be settled is compensation to Sunderland, with Allardyce having a year left on his contract at the Stadium of Light.

In a statement, Sunderland said it was "aware of the intense media speculation" but that Allardyce remained in charge "at the present time".

It added: "We share in the anger and frustration of our supporters and would like to assure them that we are working to conclude the matter in the best interests of Sunderland AFC."
