Former Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has turned down the Crystal Palace job.

The Daily Star says Pulis has pulled out the running for the manager's job at Crystal Palace after a weekend of long-distance negotiations with chairman Steve Parish.

Pulis believes the club's problems run too deep to prevent Premier League relegation and was also frustrated it was left until Saturday to renew contact with him, despite first meeting Parish a fortnight ago.
