Ian Holloway is set to become the new Crystal Palace manager.

The Croydon Guardian understands that the charismatic Blackpool manager will be unveiled tomorrow (Friday).

Holloway, who guided Blackpool to the Premier League via the play-offs in 2010, has also managed at Bristol Rovers, Plymouth Argyle and QPR.

Well-known for his plain speaking managerial style and media appearances, Holloway would replace Dougie Freedman, who left Selhurst Park last week.
