The 70-year-old will replace Frank de Boer, who was sacked after just four leageu games in charge, four games which Palace lost without scoring a goal.

Hodgson, who has been out of management since England decided not to renew his contract after their embarassing exit from Euro 2016 at the hands of Iceland.

The former Fulham, Liverpool and West Brom manager will take over a side that is in need of a boost after a very disapointing start to the season.
