Blow for Everton as Nuno Espirito Santo on the verge of joining Crystal Palace


Crystal Palace are edging closer to appointing Nuno Espirito Santo as their next boss, according to reports from The Telegraph.

The 47-year-old is on the verge of making a swift return to Premier League management with Palace who are looking to appoint a new manager following the exit of Roy Hodgson.

Nuno is in advanced talks with Palace, and he could be appointed by the end of this week.

The Eagles have considered a number of candidates for their vacant managerial position. Talks were held with Frank Lampard, and they monitored the likes of Burnley’s Sean Dyche, Swansea’s Steve Cooper and Barnsley’s Valerien Ismael.

However, Nuno is set to become their next boss and the announcement could be made later this week.

The news will come as a blow for Everton (or their fans) who also showed interest in signing the Portuguese.

Everton are without a manager since Carlo Ancelotti left their managerial position to re-join Real Madrid last week.

Palace are set for a crucial summer transfer window and a squad overhaul is needed. The Eagles released as many as 22 players with first-team regulars such as Gary Cahill, Scott Dann, Andros Townsend and Joel Ward among them who were not retained by the club.

Nuno left Wolves by mutual agreement before the final game of the season against Manchester United.
