Wales coach Chris Coleman insists he was never tempted by the Crystal Palace job.

Coleman penned new terms with the FAW this week.

“There was no temptation to go to Palace, there was no approach,” he said.

“That was because I had five years with Palace as a player and I enjoyed my time there. Everybody thinks if you are a coach you want to work in the Premier League. Financially and with the media coverage it is seen as the best league in the world. I have had five years in the Premier League with Fulham, it’s a great league.

“I don’t have any aspirations to work in the Premier League right now. When my time is up with Wales, whenever that is, I would prefer to work abroad again. I learnt more working abroad as a coach."
