The FA has confirmed Sunderland coach Sam Allardyce as England's next manager following the resignation of Roy Hodgson.
Allardyce leaves Wearside after less than a year at the helm of Sunderland, who he led out of the relegation zone last season by two points over rival Newcastle. The manager signed a two-year contract to lead England through the next World Cup: "I will do everything I can to help England do well and give our nation the success our fans deserve. Above all, we have to make the people and the whole country proud. While my main focus will be on the senior team and getting positive results, I want to add my influence to the great work being done across the development teams at St. George’s Park – a facility I have used with my previous clubs" Jul 22 - 5:34 PM

Sunderland confirm Sam Allardyce has spoken to the Football Association regarding the England manager’s vacancy.

Allardyce left the club’s training camp in Austria earlier this week and initial reports suggested that the Black Cats were in talks with a potential transfer target. However, news broke confirming the 61-year-old had met with FA vice-chairman David Gill at his home in Cheshire. On Wednesday, Sunderland released a statement advising that they had granted Allardyce permission to speak to the FA at his request before adding: "Sam is very much key to our plans. After what was an extremely challenging season, we are keen to see a period of stability, both on and off the field, and we want him to remain as manager of our football club." Current US manager Jürgen Klinsmann and Cherries boss Eddie Howe have also been linked while Sean Dyche [Burnley] is said to be the front runner for the Sunderland position if Allardyce departs.

West Ham United have finally settled on the successor to Sam Alardyce in the form of former Hammers player Slaven Bilic.

The Croatian played for only one season at the East London club but developed enough of a following that his return as a manager is being welcomed as a prodigal son returning. Bilic rose to managerial prominence despite a questionable track record. Bilic managed a failed World Cup qualifying attempt for his native Croatia during the 2010 World Cup cycle and failed to get out of the group stage at Euro 2012. He transitioned to club management after the Euros ended and moved to Lokomotiv Moscow where he was sacked after leading Lokomotiv to their worst ever finish in the Russian championship established in 1992. His tenure at Besiktas was equally unremarkable.

David Sullivan, the West Ham owner, has promised the club two big signings and an exciting new boss.

With Sam Allardyce now gone and West Ham moving to the Olympic Stadium, there is reason to be excited as a Hammers fan right now. The club have some good pieces already in place but have been absolutely killed by injuries in the past couple of seasons and if they bring in two more big signings, they could have a lot to cheer for next season. The first big signing should be coming soon, so stay tuned.

West Ham have announced that they will not renew Sam Allardyce's contract as manager of the club.

Allardyce was given an ultimatum at the beginning of the season to finish 10th or not be given another chance and the owners have kept their word. Allardyce did a respectable job, finishing 12th despite a number of long-term injuries to his top players, but it wasn't enough for management and he will not be in London next season. Allardyce should will be able to find a job in a timely manner.

Sam Allardyce will remain as manager of West Ham United next season.

There were plenty of rumors about Allardyce's job in recent weeks but the board have decided to give him another chance. Big Sam has been criticized by fans for his boring style of football and lack of attacking flair. The club have addressed those problems by demanding a top 10 finish and "more entertainment". Big Sam will reportedly hire a new attacking coach, someone who can bring the excitement back to London. The signing of striker Zarate is a great sign of West Ham's intentions for next season and we can expect better football from them in years ahead.
