Crystal Palace look set to unveil former Cardiff City boss Malky MacKay as their new manager.

Mackay, Tim Sherwood and Martin Jol were the prime candidates following the departure of Tony Pulis last week, two days before the Premier League kicked off.

Palace appear to have chosen former Scottish international MacKay, who was willing to work with the current backroom staff at Selhurst Park, while Sherwood and Jol wanted to bring in their own people.

The Scot’s close links with Palace sporting director and former Bluebirds head of recruitment Iain Moody, was also key.

Mackay’s managerial career is relatively short, having taken his bow at Watford in 2009 following the resignation of Brendan Rogers.

However, it was with Cardiff City, whom the 42 year-old guided to the Premier League in 2013, where MacKay rose to prominence.
