Sean Dyche is Crystal Palace's number one choice to become their new manager as they view the Burnley boss as the ideal successor to Sam Allardyce.

It has been four weeks since Allardyce decided to leave his position at Selhurst Park and since then several names have been linked with the role.

However, the Burnley Express reports that after much deliberation, Dyche has emerged as the top candidate and the Eagles are going to make a move to try and sign him this week.

Whether or not they get their man remains to be seen, with it believed that there is a £1m buyout in the contract the 45-year-old currently has at Turf Moor.

The Clarets aren't going to let Dyche leave without a fight, though, and are preparing to tempt him to stay in Lancashire with a bumper new deal.

Frank de Boer had been linked with Palace, but there were concerns he would simply use them as a stepping stone for a better job, while Mauricio Pellegrino was another but the Sun says he is set to go to Southampton.
