But ex-Burnley manager Dyche is the man tasked with leading Everton’s fight against relegation.

He has been waiting for a top-flight offer after snubbing several approaches from Championship clubs.

Dyche will reunite with James Tarkowski, Michael Keane and Dwight McNeil at Everton, having worked with all three players at Burnley.

He takes over with the Toffees having won just three out of their 20 Prem games this season.

And Dyche will be thrown straight in at the deep end after penning a deal to take over.

His first game is a daunting meeting with league leaders Arsenal at Goodison Park on February 4th.

In that time he won promotion to the Premier League on two occasions.

He also spent a year as manager of Watford before heading to Turf Moor in 2012.
