English professional football manager, Frank Lampard has been appointed as Everton football club new head coach.

The former England midfielder is ready to take charge of the First Team for the FA Cup fourth-round tie against Brentford at Goodison Park on Saturday, after agreeing a two-and-a-half-year contract – until June 2024.

Before the former Chelsea coach appointment, Wayne Rooney and others earlier rejected an approach to the Toffees’ chaotic search for a new manager.

Lampard is coming back to the Premier League exactly a year after he was sacked by Chelsea.

During his last stint at the Stamford Bridge, he guided the club to a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League and an FA Cup final.

Part of his first assignment will be to confirm Donny van de Beek as a loan signing from Manchester United before Monday night’s transfer deadline.

He has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract at Goodison Park, with the club.
