Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish confirms that he is interested in speaking to former Stoke City boss Tony Pulis about the vacant managerial job at the club.

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has confirmed that he is interested in holding talks with Tony Pulis about the vacant managerial position at the club.

The Eagles are seeking a replacement for Ian Holloway, who left Selhurst Park on Wednesday by mutual consent, with Palace lying 19th in the Premier League.

Pulis, who guided Stoke City to the top flight during his second spell in charge, has been out of work since leaving the Potters in May.

"I'm sure we'll try and contact him and if he's interested we'll have a chat with him and see where we go," Parish told talkSPORT when asked about his interest in Pulis.

"But I don't want to put pressure on anybody. We've started making a list, we'll throw everybody into that and see who we want to see."

Pulis and former Leeds United manager Neil Warnock have been named as the bookmakers' favourites to replace Holloway at Palace.
