Hodgson 'verbally agrees' to stay as Crystal Palace boss

Roy Hodgson has a "verbal agreement in place" to continue as manager of Crystal Palace next season, Sky Sports News understands.

However, as yet, a deal has still to be signed off to confirm the 75-year-old will remain at Selhurst Park next season

Palace's bosses have taken their time to assess various options and have considered long-terms options as part of that due diligence.

But ultimately, Hodgson's popularity with many of the key players in the Palace squad helped sway the decision.

Hodgson took over from Patrick Vieira in March on a short-term contract, with Palace picking up 18 points from his 10 games in charge as they comfortably stayed in the Premier League, eventually finishing 11th in the table.
