Premier League outfit Crystal Palace have confirmed they have sacked Frank de Boer after just 77 days as manager, with Roy Hodgson set to replace him at Selhurst Park.

The Dutchman, who succeeded Sam Allardyce in June, lost all four of his Premier League games without scoring; the worst start of any top-flight club in 93 years.

The Eagles dominated in a 1-0 defeat at Burnley on Sunday and De Boer hoped an improved performance would save him, but on Monday morning he was confirmed as the shortest-serving Premier League manager in terms of matches.

Sky reports that Hodgson is set to sign a two-year contract as his successor and bring in Ray Lewington, who worked with him for England, as his assistant.
