CRYSTAL PALACE are reportedly on the verge of appointing Patrick Vieira as their new manager.

Roy Hodgson left Selhurst Park at the end of last season with the squad tipped for a huge summer overhaul.

Former Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre and Swansea’s Steve Cooper were revealed by SunSport to be in the running.

But Vieira has an agreement in principle to take charge, as reported by The Athletic.

Palace reportedly expect to sign off the deal on Tuesday after putting in a visa application for the Frenchman.

Vieira was first linked with the job in April as Hodgson, 73, neared the end of his contract.

The Eagles had initially wanted Swiss coach Favre as the new man in the dugout failed to agree a deal.

Instead, they will welcome Vieira for his third role in management.
