Steve Cooper and Sean Dyche are back in the running for the Crystal Palace job after the Eagles ended their interest in Nuno Espirito Santo.

Palace’s move to appoint Nuno has broken down after the two parties were unable to reach an agreement despite talks over the past week.

The Eagles will now explore alternative options and will consider moves for Swansea manager Cooper and Burnley boss Dyche.

Cooper emerged as a leading candidate when Palace announced Roy Hodgson would be leaving his position as manager at Selhurst Park, particularly due to his work with young players having won the Under-17 World Cup with England in 2017.

It has been reported that Dyche is set to sign a new contract at Burnley but Palace could now renew their interest in a man they looked at hiring in 2012 just after he had taken the Turf Moor job.

Eddie Howe and Frank Lampard are also candidates for Palace, with Lampard keen to get back into work after being sacked by Chelsea in January.

Ex-Bournemouth coach Howe, meanwhile, is on the hunt for a job after talks with Celtic ended.
