Sam Allardyce has signed an initial two-year deal to become England’s new manager, the Football Assocation has announced.

The 61-year-old boss knew the job was his on Wednesday but a compensation package with his club Sunderland needed to be finalised before the announcement could be made.

Allardyce, who begins work immediately, said: “I am extremely honoured to be appointed England manager especially as it is no secret that this is the role I have always wanted. For me, it is absolutely the best job in English football.”
