Portuguese manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, could be announced as Crystal Palace's new manager following the departure of former gaffer, Roy Hodgson, at the end of last season.
Sky Sports reported that Nuno, who left Wolves at the end of last season on mutual consent, is favoured ahead of a number of managerial candidates including Frank Lampard, Swansea's Steve Cooper, Barnsley's Valerian Ismael, Brentford's Thomas Frank and former Nice coach, Patrick Vieira.

The deal to make Nuno the next manager is said to be at the final stage after a previous three days worth of talks about Selhurst Park last week, including further positive discussions with the club's board.

The Portuguese who was favoured to join Everton to replace Carlo Ancelotti having held talks with the Toffees' management seem to be heading to Selhurst Park.

Nuno has also been linked with the permanent gaffer role at Tottenham who fired Roma's new manager, Jose Mourinho, before the end of last season.

Palace parted ways with Hodgson after almost four years in charge, and hope to have a new manager in place by the weekend with Nuno set for a swift return to Premier League management.

The 47-year-old led the Wolves to the Championship title in 2018, before bringing European football to Molineux with back-to-back seventh-placed finish.
