Ahead of the meeting, Allardyce has hit out at a lack of "decency" after Everton pushed ahead with boardroom changes by appointing Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale to replace Robert Elstone as CEO with Dr Keith Harris becoming deputy chairman without his knowledge.

'Sam was brought in at a challenging time last season to provide us with some stability and we are grateful to him for doing that.

Watford continue to be locked in negotiations with Everton having made an official complaint to the Premier League over the Toffees' alleged tapping up of former manager Marco Silva.

The Everton role was Allardyce's 11th permanent managerial post but fifth since 2015.

However, his style of football was never palatable to the Goodison Park faithful and there was palpable discontent towards Allardyce amongst the Everton supporters, despite him steering the club away from a probable relegation threat. "Generally there's no smoke without fire".

Allardyce, whose previous clubs include Bolton, Newcastle, Sunderland and Crystal Palace, landed his dream job with England in 2016 but that turned sour after only one match, with Allardyce stepping down following a newspaper sting. During his tenure, the club was also forced to apologise to Allardyce last month for a survey that was sent to fans asking them to rank their manager's performance on a scale of 0 to 10.

However, Silva himself was then dismissed by Watford in January with the Hornets citing disruption caused by Everton's "unwarranted approach" for a major dip in form.

Wayne Rooney's future at the club was reported to have rested on whether Allardyce would be manager next season.

Allardyce, 63, was parachuted into the club in November after the woeful start by predecessor Ronald Koeman - and subsequent caretaker David Unsworth - which saw the Toffees languishing in 18th.
