His time at Derby also underlined Lampard’s ability to play attacking football, something that the Palace fans would certainly welcome. And the former 106-cap England international is also a London boy through and through.The Palace job would be perfect for Lampard, giving him a chance to prove himself in the top-flight without the pressures of a mega club like Chelsea.

Eddie HoweThe reputation of Eddie Howe may have taken a nosedive with Bournemouth’s relegation last summer, but the 43-year-old’s work at the south-coast club would seemingly make him an ideal fit for Palace.Howe’s talent for bringing in young players and getting the most out of his squad saw Bournemouth stay in the top tier for far longer than many had predicted when they gained promotion in 2015.He has been out of work since leaving Bournemouth by mutual consent last summer, but Palace would likely face competition for his signature, with Celtic among the clubs heavily linked with the coach.

Credit to the manager, his mentality. He’s a very strong man in terms of knowing what he wants from his players.”If Barnsley fail to win the play-offs then the 45-year-old could be open to a move.
