Hodgson in talks over Palace return to replace Vieira

Roy Hodgson is in talks to return as Crystal Palace manager following the sacking of Patrick Vieira.

Hodgson, 75, left Palace in the summer of 2021 after four years in charge and is now the clear front-runner to take over from Vieira, who was dismissed on Friday morning after 18 months in the job.

Palace have spoken to a number of candidates, including Adi Hutter, who was most recently head coach at German side Borussia Monchengladbach

But Hodgson is the clear frontrunner to take over from Vieira.

Palace have already confirmed that U21s head coach Paddy McCarthy will take charge of the Eagles' next game at Arsenal on Sunday, supported by assistant Darren Powell and goalkeeping coach Dean Kiely.

Palace chairman Steve Parish exclusively told Sky Sports News that he will not rush appointing Vieira's successor.
