Crystal Palace make Frank De Boer offer to become new boss - sources
Crystal Palace have offered Frank De Boer the manager's job and he is likely to take it, sources with knowledge of the situation told ESPN FC.
The Eagles are looking for their eighth boss in seven years in the wake of Sam Allardyce's shock resignation, after having kept the London club in the Premier League.
De Boer, 47, left his last job at Inter Milan in November -- having been in charge for only 14 matches -- after he was unable to produce the consistency which saw him deliver the Eredivisie title for Ajax over four consecutive seasons.
The former Barcelona and Rangers player is now in pole position to take over at Selhurst Park, over several other candidates said to have been short-listed, including Christophe Galtier, Mauricio Pellegrino and Burnley boss Sean Dyche.
The Eagles will want to have the new man in place ahead of the trip to Hong Kong in mid-July for the Premier League Asia Trophy, which will also feature Liverpool, West Brom and Leicester.
