Crystal Palace are set to revive their interest in Swansea manager Steve Cooper after failing to land Lucien Favre.

Palace looked set to appoint former Borussia Dortmund boss Favre but the deal fell through in the closing stages, with the 63-year-old, who hasn’t managed since December last year, stating that he wants a longer break from football. 

As reported by The Sun, Cooper is now seen as the leading candidate as Palace look to replace Roy Hodgson.

Palace have been linked with Cooper previously, with the Swansea boss having a £3million release fee.

Fulham also expressed interest in Cooper as a potential replacement should Scott Parker leave, but they were unwilling to pay the compensation package.

Cooper took Swansea to the Championship play-off final last season, where they lost to Brentford.

He was appointed as Swansea manager in 2019, having previously coached England at Under-16 and Under-17 levels, winning the Under-17 World Cup in 2017.

It is a summer of significant change for Palace, with a significant rebuilding job required in terms of the squad.  

Palace finished 14th last season and are looking for the right individual to build upon the work that Hodgson did during his time at the club.
