Reports: Lampard on three-man shortlist for Crystal Palace job

Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is said to be one of three candidates in the running to succeed Roy Hodgson as Crystal Palace manager next season.

Hodgson's contract at Palace is set to expire at the end of the season, and Lampard is one of several candidates for the job, including Eddie Howe and Sean Dyche of Burnley.

Lampard, a Chelsea legend, was fired from his role as manager at Stamford Bridge at the end of January, after leading the Blues since the start of the 2019-20 season.

According to Football Insider, Dyche and Celtic-linked Howe are the front-runners, with Lampard already third in line for Steve Parish.

Both the Burnley manager and the ex-Bournemouth manager have spoken with Palace, and the club is supposed to meet with Frank Lampard about taking over from Hodgson.

Despite having to work with a transfer ban over the club, Lampard led the Blues to a fourth-place finish in his first season in charge.
