Crystal Palace have officially named Patrick Vieira as the club's next manager.

Palace, looking to replace Roy Hodgson, were nearing a deal with Lucien Favre before talks broke down.

"It is a project that is really appealing to me, having spoken a lot with the chairman and sporting director about their ambition and plans for the whole club, including the academy," said Vieira.

Vieira began his managerial career in 2016 with NYCFC, leading the club to their first-ever playoff appearance.

He was most recently sacked from Nice in 2020.
