Roy Hodgson is approaching a second stint as Crystal Palace manager on a deal until the end of the season, according to reports.
Hodgson had expected to end his long managerial career which first began in 1976 after completing a short-term project at Watford last year, but a number of media outlets reported that he was coming out of retirement to return to the Palace.
The 75-year-old looks set to replace Patrick Vieira, the man who replaced him at Selhurst Park in July 2021, with the Frenchman leaving his post earlier this month after a poor run of results.
Hodgson ended his four-year spell at Palace at the conclusion of the 2020-21 season, having kept the Eagles in the Premier League, and he faced a similar task in the next few months.
Paddy McCarthy took charge of the club on a temporary basis, but Palace slipped to a 4-1 defeat by league leaders Arsenal and remained without a win in 2023, in 13 matches in all competitions.
The PA news agency has contacted the palace for comment.
