Manuel Pellegrini is set to be named as the new head coach of West Ham United after agreeing a three-year contract with the club.

The 64-year-old met the club's co-owner David Sullivan this afternoon and agreed to become the club's 16th full-time manager, following the recently-departed David Moyes.

The Chilean is set to earn an incredible 30million during the course of his contract, having agreed a salary in the region of 10million per year. He has also been promised full control of recruitment.

West Ham are expected to confirm Pellegrini's appointment within the next 48 hours, once lawyers representing each party have completed the necessary paperwork.
