The London Evening Standard is reporting that Palace are "confident of appointing a manager before the weekend with Chris Coleman emerging as the clear favourite to succeed Ian Holloway".

The Daily Mail reports the Football Association of Wales denies it has received contact from Palace about appointing Coleman.

The 43-year-old was at Crystal Palace for four years as a player.

His contract as Wales manager is due to expire this month.

An extension was agreed, but not signed - with Coleman casting doubts over his future ahead of Wales' final two World Cup qualifiers last month
