Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “He took Swansea to the brink of the Premier League, but Steve Cooper (15/8) may still get his chance in the big time after all.
"Palace won't want a repeat of the disastrous Frank de Boer hiring, so going for Cooper, who has done such a good job in South Wales, could prove a masterstroke."
Next Palace manager odds:
- Steve Cooper – 15/8
- Eddie Howe – 4/1
- Nuno Espirito Santo – 8/1
- Sean Dyche – 8/1
- Frank Lampard – 12/1
- Chris Wilder – 18/1
- Patrick Vieira – 25/1
- Chris Coleman – 25/1
