The 56-year-old manager is believed to had a breakdown in negotiations with the board after he felt they didn’t give him enough support in the transfer window.

Pulis has already added Brede Hangeland as well as Frazier Campbell to the side but is unhappy that the club were unable to aid him in securing his top targets, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Steven Caulker.

He did wonders for the side last season, bringing them out of the relegation battle with an amazing five game winning streak and helped Palace finish in 11th place, their highest ever since the start of the league.

There will be a press conference held today by Parrish in regards to this issue, one day before they go head to head againstĀ an on form Gunners side.
