Crystal Palace FC are to discuss their managerial vacancy with their four-time former boss Steve Coppell.

But the club’s co-chairman Steve Parish has stressed the talks will not necessarily lead to Coppell taking the job, although they are keen to pick his brains on the matter.

Coppell is currently working as director of football at Crawley Town but has not been employed as a manager since leaving Bristol City in August 2010, when he claimed at the time that he was going to retire.

Lennie Lawrence will be in charge of the team for the game against Leicester at the weekend but the club are keen to appoint a successor to Dougie Freedman, who has departed for Bolton, sooner rather than later.

"We've got to be respectful because Steve works for Crawley," said Parish.

"I value his advice greatly. He's a very wise guy and has achieved everything in the game.

"He's got Palace at heart so I know he’ll give us good advice based on the right things.

"I'll definitely be speaking to him but whether it's as manager, I don't know."

Parish also revealed the club have been contacted by a number of potential candidates and they will decide on a short-list in the next few days.

  7/4 Steve Coppell (Coral)

  8/1 Andy Thorn (Stan James)
