Crystal Palace are ready to approach David Moyes to assess whether or not he is open to taking over from Tony Pulis, but are fearful he may reject them.

The Eagles are currently managerless after the former Stoke boss left Selhurst Park by mutual consent last week, and have since suffered set-backs in their hunt for a replacement.

Malky Mackay was in line to take the position before controversy engulfed the former Cardiff man, while reports suggest that Tim Sherwood has ruled out relocating to south London.

And now the London Evening Standard says that Moyes is set to be sounded out.

However the Scot is likely to reject Palace’s offer, with the former United gaffer said to be looking to move abroad after his botched spell at Manchester United.

The prospective approach does however signal the intent being shown by the club, although their list of candidates appears to be dwindling.

Former Celtic chief Neil Lennon is understood to be leading the charge, while Steve Clarke has also been the subject of some rumours.
