Captain Fabricio Coloccini is the surprise name at the head of the betting to replace Alan Pardew as Newcastle boss should he complete a switch to Crystal Palace.

Pardew’s departure to Palace appears imminent, with United on Monday night giving the London club permission to speak to the 53-year-old.

Having been at the helm for four years, Pardew is part of the furniture at St James’ Park, albeit despite never really being a fan favourite.

Consequently his exit would leave a large void and on Tuesday morning Argentina defender Coloccini was the early favourite to fill it in what would likely be a player-manager role.
