Crystal Palace is nearing the appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo as their next boss, according to reports from The Telegraph.
The 47 year old is about to make a quick return to Premier League management with Palace, who want to appoint a new manager after the departure of Roy Hodgson.
Nuno is in advanced talks with Palace and could be appointed by the end of this week.
The Eagles have considered a number of candidates for their vacant leadership position. Conversations were with Frank Lampard, and they were monitoring people like Burnley’s Sean Dyche, Swansea’s Steve Cooper, and Barnsley’s Valerien Ismael.
However, Nuno will be her next boss and the announcement could come later this week.
The news will be a blow to Everton (or their fans), who have also shown an interest in signing the Portuguese.
Everton have been without a coach since Carlo Ancelotti left his leadership position to return to Real Madrid last week.
Palace are facing a crucial summer transfer window and a roster overhaul is needed. The Eagles sacked up to 22 players, including first-team regulars like Gary Cahill, Scott Dann, Andros Townsend and Joel Ward, who were not taken over by the club.
Nuno left Wolves by mutual agreement ahead of the final game of the season against Manchester United.
