Former Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce have been linked with the vacant Crystal Palace job.

That follows the announcement that ex-England boss Roy Hodgson will leave the post when the season is concluded.

Allardyce, who recently announced that he will depart already relegated West Brom, is priced at 25/1 to take over at Selhurst Park.

SkyBet also has Scott Parker and Rafa Benitez priced as 25/1 and 40/1 outsiders respectively with former Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard a firm favourite at 11/8.

Interestingly, Allardyce is also an outside shot to take over at Wolves following the news that Nuno Espirito Santo is set to leave Molineux.

The bookies have the former Bolton boss priced at 40/1 to replace the Portuguese manager, with Benitez also in the running at 12/1 alongside Parker at 33/1.

And the speculation doesn’t end there with Allardyce also featuring in the betting to become Tottenham’s next permanent manager at 80/1.

Parker looks to be a firm favourite for the hot-seat vacated by Jose Mourinho at 12/1.

Benitez is currently priced at 22/1 with Alan Pardew an outsider at 100/1.

Ryan Mason remains in temporary charge for Tottenham’s final game of the season against Leicester City.
