Frank de Boer has been sacked by Crystal Palace after just four games in charge.

The Dutchman has endured a nightmare start, failing to take a point from any of the club's first four Premier League matches since taking over in the summer and the club have now terminated his contract.

Former England manager Roy Hodgson is reported to have been lined up to succeed De Boer.
