Next Crystal Palace Manager Odds And Favourites As Frank Lampard Likely To Replace Roy Hodgson

Frank Lampard is the leading contender to become Crystal Palace's next managerial appointment, following the news that Roy Hodgson is to step down at the end of the season.

According to reports, Palace have been in contact with Lampard and his agent to take charge at Selhurst Park, with talks "progressing" between them.

The 42-year-old Chelsea legend is still a free agent having been axed by the Blues after just 18 months in charge - and was linked with the vacant England under-21s post.

But now the England hero looks all but set to join Palace after a flurry of activity in the betting market.

Crystal Palace announced on Tuesday morning that veteran boss Roy Hodgson will be stepping down at the end of the season.

Fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the rumoured appointment, too.

Lampard hasn't been shy about discussing a return either and recently admitted to receiving several 'flattering offers'.

In a recent interview, he said: "I've had some opportunities that have come up in the last six weeks, two months, that have been flattering but not the right thing.

"The opportunities weren't quite right but I think about it. It would be something I'm keen to do, at the right time, at the right place."

The Telegraph claim Palace will hand Lampard a £50million budget this summer after he looked for assurances he would be backed to improve a squad that will require a dramatic overhaul in the transfer window.

Chelsea duo Billy Gilmour and Tammy Abraham have also been tipped as two players he could pursue.

Gilmour was promoted to the Chelsea first-team squad under Lampard, but has found opportunities under Thomas Tuchel hard to come by for the most part and a loan move could suit all parties next season.

Abraham was a regular starter and goalscorer under Lampard, but he's barely featured under the German boss, with reports suggesting Chelsea will listen to offers for the academy graduate.
