Fabrizio Romano shares Sunday morning update on Everton announcement of Sean Dyche hire

Everton are set to officially unveil Sean Dyche as their new manager “soon”, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Guardian journalist reported via his personal Twitter account early on Sunday morning (29 January) that Dyche, 51, is expected to sign a two-and-a-half-year deal at Goodison Park to replace Frank Lampard.

It is understood that all the contracts have now been signed for Everton to officially appoint the former Burnley manager as their latest man in charge.

How will it go?

Evertonians seem pleased with this appointment because, let’s face it, it’s the right one to get us out of the mess we’re in right now.

While hiring Marcelo Bielsa would have probably brought some long-term stability and at least given us a plan, his idea to manage the Under-21s for the rest of the season would have more than likely seen him in charge of a Championship club later this year.

Everton cannot get relegated.

Financially, it would be a disaster and getting out of the Championship while in such dire straights would not be easy because the strength of that league is growing and growing.

For the long-term Bielsa would have been the right man but it was an absolute no-brainer to hire Dyche – he should keep us in the Premier League.

Getting rid of Anthony Gordon is a good first step, especially for the monster fee Newcastle are willing to pay for the over-rated winger.

Dyche could send some more players out and bring in a couple too, which we’re more than happy for him to do.

He should also get the best out of our defenders – especially James Tarkowski – and maybe even Dwight McNeil, though he was a terrible signing for the money we paid too.
