Parish confirms Pulis interest

Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish has not yet contacted Tony Pulis about their vacant manager's position but admitted he is almost certain to be in touch with him.

Former Stoke boss Pulis has emerged as the frontrunner to take over at Selhurst Park in the wake of Ian Holloway's departure.

Parish is keen to talk to the experienced campaigner, who has never managed a club relegated from the Premier League, but he was keen to stress Palace are keeping their options open.

"We haven't contacted him (Pulis) yet but I think we will have a chat with him, definitely, if indeed he is interested," Parish told Sky Sports News.

"I don't know if he is. His name keeps being mentioned but he may be happy with whatever else he is doing.

"We've got a long list we have made, hopefully with everybody and anybody on it. We will start contacting people who are out of work and try to arrange some time to see them.

"But we will have conversations with all the usual suspects, all the obvious candidates, and maybe some not so obvious.

"We will try and make a quick decision but we will try and make a right decision."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
