Barnsley boss Valerien Ismael in frame for Crystal Palace return

Barnsley boss Valerien Ismael is on Crystal Palace's radar.

The Telegraph says Ismael has reportedly been added to Crystal Palace's managerial shortlist should Roy Hodgson leave at the end of the season.

Hodgson, 73, who is out of contract in the summer along with several players, has repeatedly insisted he would discuss his future when the time was right.

However, the Eagles have already lined up a list of replacements should he go and one of the contenders is former Palace player Ismael.

The Frenchman, who made just 13 appearances for Palace in 1998, is one of the favourites to take over from Hodgson should he fail to renew terms at Selhurst Park.

Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, Swansea's Steve Cooper and Sean Dyche at Burnley are also contenders for the job.
