Wigan Agree Compensation Fee With Everton For Release of Roberto Martinez, Says Dave Whelan

Wigan have agreed a compensation fee with Everton to release Roberto Martinez from his contract, according to Wigan Athletic owner Dave Whelan.

The compensation fee clears the way for Martinez to agree personal terms with Everton to become the new manager at Goodison Park, replacing David Moyes.

Everton are expected to announce their new manager this week, and Martinez is now in pole position.

The 39-year-old manager is now on the verge of becoming manager of Everton Football Club.

Do you think Everton are making the correct decision? Is he the best candidate for the position who has the experience and ability to work within a tight budget? If Martinez does become manager, he’ll be managing Everton this summer on US soil for the International Champions Cup.
