Crystal Palace have ended talks with Nuno Espirito Santo over the vacant managerial position at Selhurst Park.
Palace have been without a manager after Roy Hodgson announced his retirement at the end of last campaign; Nuno, on the other hand, has been jobless since he was relieved of his Wolves duties last month.
Santo made a series of demands, and with Wolves only bettering Palace by one point, the club decided to end their interest in the Portuguese manager.
Steve Cooper and Sean Dyche are among other managers Palace have been keeping tabs on, and they are likely to move for the former.
"Steve Cooper appointment won’t excite the likes of Zaha and Eze or boost Season Ticket sales at CPFC. Let’s hope Everton don’t get Nuno & we restart talks," one fan tweeted.
Another vented his frustration: "Was the best thing that could’ve happened and it’s gonna be f****** Steve Cooper now."
And another held a similar sentiment: "If we end up with Steve Cooper I’m gonna lose my mind."
Journalist, Ben Isaacs, said: "Steve Cooper has done incredibly well for Swansea. Meanwhile a large section of their fans can't stand him or his football. That alone should give Palace pause."

Cooper is currently at Swansea, where he secured a playoff spot with the Swans, however, they failed to make a Wembley appearance as they lost their semi-final clash.
The Englishman was at the helm of the U17 side that captured the World Cup in 2017, with Phil Foden and Rhian Brewster firing England to glory.
