Roy Hodgson agrees Crystal Palace stay

Roy Hodgson has agreed terms with Crystal Palace to stay in charge as manager for another season, 90min understands.

Hodgson, who took charge of 162 games in his first spell as Palace manager from 2017 to 2021, returned to Selhurst Park in March after Patrick Vieira was dismissed from his post.

The veteran coach won five of his ten games in charge at the backend of the 2022/23 term – including three in a row to begin his second stint – to banish fears of relegation and an agreement with chairman Steve Parish has been reached for Hodgson to remain in role for another year.

The deal is not yet signed but Palace are planning on the former England boss leading them into the 2023/24 campaign, having mulled the decision over since May.

Several Premier League clubs could try to take advantage if Sheffield United are left needing to sell leading midfielders Sander Berge and Iliman Ndiaye this summer.

Owner Prince Abdullah is seeking a sale but the situation looks set to hamper the club’s preparations for the season ahead until the process is concluded. Berge and Ndiaye both have contracts which expire in 2024 and 90min understands United could look to sell the duo this summer to ensure incoming transfer fees.

Berge has long been on Fulham’s radar, who tried to sign him in January and and could move again if Joao Palhinha departs. West Ham, Newcastle, Wolves and Everton have all shown previous interest in the Norway international.

Everton are also among the sides interested in Ndiaye. The Toffees were unsuccessful with a January approach but are continued admirers. There is significant competition from France, however, with Marseille and Lens both alert as they each seek to strengthen ahead of next season’s Champions League.
