Martinez led the Latics to victory over Manchester City in this season's FA Cup final but was unable to keep them in the Premier League, with their eight-year spell in the top-flight ending with a 4-1 defeat at Arsenal.

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright is understood to have sought permission to speak to Martinez about the vacant manager's position at Goodison Park but was keen to wait until his Wigan future was resolved.

The Spaniard's departure from the DW Stadium now gives Kenwright the green light to pursue Martinez as he seeks a replacement for David Moyes after he left to take over from Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
