Palace have seen Martin O'Neill commit to the Republic of Ireland job, while Tony Pulis' interest has waned.

The Daily Mail says Wales manager Chris Coleman is emerging as a leading candidate and sources close to the 43-year-old claim he would quit his £200,000-a-year job with Wales to go back to the club where he spent five years as a player.

But co-owner Steve Parish and other Palace executives believe managers such as Martin Jol, Malky Mackay, Chris Hughton and Alan Pardew may become free soon.
