Former Stoke boss heads up shortlist.
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish will hold talks with former Stoke City manager Tony Pulis later this week with the view of getting him into the vacant managerial hot seat, the Daily Mail reports.
Reports have suggested that initial contact between the two has been made between the two and formal talks will begin later this week with the hope that a deal can be hashed out.
Pulis has long been the favourite to replace Ian Holloway at Selhurst Park, but there are still fears over whether the club will be able to afford him.
The 55-year-old earned around £1.5m a year whilst at the Britannia Stadium, a figure that Ian Holloway could only dream of in south London.
Much of the deal will balance on whether Pulis wants an immediate return to the Premier League instead of holding out for a higher paid position. Pulis was shown the exit door by the Potters at the end of last season after getting the club up to the top flight and then keeping them there before Mark Hughes took over.
Meanwhile, former Eagles striker Shefki Kuqi is set to begin his coaching career after leaving Scottish Premier League side Hibernian.
