Crystal Palace have appointed former England boss Sam Allardyce as manager on a two-and-a-half-year deal, a day after sacking Alan Pardew.

Pardew was sacked on Thursday with the club 17th in the Premier League after a run of one win in 11 games.

Allardyce travelled to Palace's training ground on Friday to complete talks with chairman Steve Parish.

The 62-year-old will take training on Saturday, before Palace's Boxing Day game at Watford.

On Friday, Allardyce told reporters the Palace job was a "fantastic" opportunity to return to top-flight management.

He has been out of work since leaving his role as England manager by mutual consent after 67 days and just one game, in the wake of a Daily Telegraph investigation.

However, the former Bolton, Blackburn, Newcastle and West Ham boss saved Sunderland from relegation last season despite them being second from bottom when he joined.

Parish said Pardew's "expansive style of football hasn't worked" and told BBC Sport on Thursday they would now "wind the dial back the other way".

Parish, who co-owns the club with American investors Josh Harris and David Blitzer, said relegation is "so costly" that the club needed to make a change.

Caretaker manager Keith Millen took Friday's news conference and told the media that Allardyce would "sort the players out".

Pardew, 55, was dismissed after a miserable 2016 in which Palace have taken just 26 points from the 36 Premier League matches they have played - and are only one point above the relegation zone.

The club's points-per-game tally of 0.72 in 2016 was their second worst in a calendar year - and their form for the year is the worst of all 92 Premier League and EFL clubs. (bbc.co.uk)
