Blackpool boss Ian Holloway reportedly accepts a contract to take over at Crystal Palace.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has reportedly accepted a contract to become the next Crystal Palace manager.

According to BBC Radio Lancashire, the 49-year-old has decided to join Palace on a four-and-a-half-year deal.

Holloway, who has spent three-and-a-half years at Blackpool, has been linked with a number of other Championship posts because of contract issues at Bloomfield Road.

He held talks with Ipswich Town, who have since appointed Mick McCarthy, but now looks likely to join Palace.

The South London outfit have been without a manager since Dougie Freedman left to take the Bolton Wanderers job.

After a lightning start to the season, Blackpool have plummeted out of the playoff places while Palace are on form and sit fourth.
