Sam Allardyce will be named as the new England manager - with confirmation expected in the next 24 hours, BBC reports.


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


The 61-year-old replaces Roy Hodgson, who resigned after the surprise defeat by Iceland at this summer's Euro 2016 finals in France.


Allardyce, a former West Ham, Newcastle and Bolton boss, 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.


Allardyce was present as Sunderland beat Hartlepool 3-0 in a pre-season friendly on Wednesday, but left before full-time.


The FA board meets on Thursday, when it is expected Allardyce's appointment will be officially confirmed.
