Former Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has claimed that he is ready to return to management and has already held talks with clubs.
The 55-year-old has been waiting in the wings for six months after he was sacked by the Eagles in December.
Pardew has plenty of experience managing English clubs having had spells in charge of Reading, West Ham United, Charlton Athletic, Southampton and Newcastle United.
"As a manager, you have to wait for that phone call to come and then you have to make a decision whether the project's going to be right," Pardew told Sky Sports News.
"You don't want people to get the sack but unfortunately when you're out of work you have to keep an eye on things and see where the course is going.
"It will be a big year for the Premier League this year. There's big money in it so it has to be spent wisely. People will be looking and there will be mistakes made so hopefully I can come and help when that happens. There are a couple of people I've spoken to but nothing just as yet."
Pardew was in charge of Palace for just under two years before he got sacked.
