​Allardyce in frame for Crystal Palace vacancy

Sam Allardyce is being lined up as Crystal Palace's new manager following the dismissal of Alan Pardew, Sky Sports News is reporting.

The former West Ham and England boss' representatives will meet for talks with Palace chairman Steve Parish in the next 24 hours.

It is understood there is no agreement in place yet between Parish and Allardyce, and while 'Big Sam' is favourite to replace Pardew, a deal is still some way off.

Sky sources have suggested Allardyce wants to find out how much he will have to spend in the forthcoming transfer window.

He is also keen to learn more about the management structures at Selhurst Park and how he will work with Parish and the American majority shareholders Josh Harris and David Blitzer.
