Frank de Boer in line for Crystal Palace job

The Eagles have been left without a boss since the sudden departure of ex-England manager Sam Allardyce, who retired from football management without warning, having kept the side from relegation to the Championship last season.

Mauricio Pellegrino has emerged as Southampton's first-choice candidate to replace Claude Puel following an impressive interview and is now poised to follow his friend, Mauricio Pochettino, to St Mary's as the second Argentinian manager in the Premier League.

On Thursday, news emerging from Holland suggests that Palace have made a breakthrough in their bid to fill the managerial hotseat at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace are set to appoint former Inter Milan and Ajax boss Frank de Boer as their next manager, reports BBC Sport.

De Boer was linked with the vacancy at Everton that summer following the sacking of Roberto Martinez, but he opted to try his hand in Italy with sleeping giants Inter instead - penning a three-year deal in the process.

But the Eagles have plumped for former Barcelona defender De Boer, whose last post was at Inter Milan previous year.

De Boer will join up with at least one Dutchman at Palace, should he take the job.

The fact Palace already have wingers Andros Townsend and Wilfried Zaha should allow De Boer to play an expansive style of play.

De Boer will be desperate to impress after his failed stint in the San Siro.
