Sam Allardyce will reportedly receive a huge £1 million bonus if he manages to keep Leeds United in the Premier League.
The Whites are set to sack Javi Gracia who has failed to revive the club.
Sunday’s 4-1 loss to Bournemouth was their fourth defeat in their last five league matches under the Spanish boss.
They have parted company with Gracia even though he was appointed only in February.
The Peacocks have already dispensed with the services of director of football Victor Orta after a disagreement with owner Andrea Radrizzani over Gracia’s dismissal.
Allardyce is reportedly set to replace the 53-year-old at Elland Road. The English boss has been out of work since leaving West Bromwich Albion at the end of the 2020-21 season.
According to the Daily Star, Allardyce has been offered a £1m bonus to keep Leeds in the top flight.
The former England manager is regarded as a survival specialist as he boasts a superb record when it comes to turning a club’s fortunes around.
He has the distinction of saving Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Everton from relegation to the Championship in the past.
However, the highly experienced manager was unable to keep West Brom up in his most recent job.
Only four games are remaining in the season and Allardyce faces the challenging task of maintaining the Whites’ top-flight status by the end of the campaign.
The run-in also makes his job difficult, with Leeds set to face Manchester United, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur.
