In another development, Sam Allardyce has resigned as Crystal Palace manager, five months after he joined the Premier League club.

Allardyce replaced Allan Pardew in December on a two-and-half years deal with the Eagles, one point above the relegation zone.

But the 62-year-old, who had an ill-fated one-game spell as England boss, led the club to eight wins from 21 games and guided them to a 14th place finish.

Allardyce, who is done with the rescue mission, is looking for a new assignment, while Palace is still reeling from the shock of Allardyce’s sudden departure.

The club has already been inundated with agents claiming to represent managers interested in the job including the former Manchester City Manager, Roberto Mancini, andMarco Silva, who is expected to inform Hull City that he is leaving, following the team’s relegation to the Championship.
