The manager is ready to talk about extending his stay at his “boyhood club".
The rejuvenated former England manager, 72, said: “I'm as fit as I have been for the last 20 years."
Hodgson took over at Selhurst Park in September 2017 after Frank de Boer's team had lost their first four Premier League matches without scoring a goal.
“It has been a very good two years, I have enjoyed it more than I thought I would," said the top flight's most senior manager.
“I wasn't 100 per cent certain that I necessarily wanted to come back into full-time football. But it has always been the club of my heart and the heart of my father."
