Selhurst Park side step-up push for new manager.
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has drawn up a managerial short-list as he seeks to find a replacement for sacked boss Neil Warnock according to Goal.com.
Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew leads the Eagles list and is joined by Hull City’s Steve Bruce and former Spurs manager Tim Sherwood.
Former Palace player Tony Popovic complete the quartet of names on Parish’s wish-list but a move for Pardew could be aided by the fact that despite the Magpies boss having a £5m release clause it may take just £2.5m to secure the appointment of the former fan favourite.
Pardew refused to attend the post-match press conference following Newcastle United’s win over Everton on Sunday, heightening speculation that he may be on his way back to the South London side he represented for four years as a player.
