Roy Hodgson would be willing to return to old club Crystal Palace on a short-term basis, talkSPORT understands.
Hodgson is among the contenders to replace the sacked Patrick Vieira as manager.
The 75-year-old spent four years in charge at Selhurst Park and maintains a good relationship with the Eagles hierarchy.
Palace aim to appoint a successor to Vieira during the international break, having decided to wield the axe after a 1-0 loss to rivals Brighton.
That defeat capped off a worrying 12-game winless run, with the three fixtures before Brighton seeing Palace fail to manage a single shot on target.
Vieira was named Eagles manager in 2021, finishing 12th in the league last season, 13 points from the bottom three.
However, due to an appalling winless run in 2023, Palace now find themselves three points from the relegation zone, having looked destined for safety before the World Cup break.
Since Vieira’s firing, Hodgson has shot to the top of the betting odds to replace him, having himself been replaced by the Frenchman in 2021.
Among the runners and riders are a number of familiar faces, including Jesse Marsch and Ralph Hassenhuttl, who were sacked by Leeds and Southampton respectively this season.
Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez is also among the names, along with ex-Borussia Dortmund and Nice boss Lucien Favre.
