Having been confirmed as Crystal Palace's managerial replacement for the stuttering Frank de Boer, it appears Roy Hodgson turned down offers from China following his departure from the England national team manager, according to the Mirror.

The former England boss succeeds Frank de Boer who was dismissed just four games into the new Premier League season with Palace yet to pick up a point, or score a goal.

This is very much the club of my boyhood and I remember in my youth watching the club from the terraces at the Holmesdale Road end which gave me such fond memories, he told the Palace website.

"I'm certain we will pull away from the mire and I'm very confident the players we have here will help us achieve our goal, which is to make certain we don't get relegated".

In general terms, I thought the four years, quite satisfied with the work we did.

The veteran gaffer, who becomes the Premier League's third septuagenarian after Bobby Robson and Sir Alex Ferguson, previously led Fulham to the Europa League final, and West Brom to a top-half finish, however he flopped at Liverpool and Blackburn.

Ghana winger Jeffrey Schlupp will play under a new manager in the coming days following the sacking of Frank de Boer after five games and 77 days in charge.

It is Hodgson's first job since stepping down as England boss after they were knocked out of Euro 2016 by Iceland.

It is believed that former England manager Roy Hodgson will replace him as the new manager.

Parish also wrote: "We are 4 games in, it's a bad start but we have to stick together". "I can't put that right but I'm very pleased to be back at the highest level with a good club".

The Eagles host Southampton in their next Premier League fixture, before welcoming Huddersfield back to Selhurst Park in the Carabao Cup.
