Crystal Palace have confirmed the appointment of Tony Pulis as their new manager on a two-and-a-half year contract.

The 55-year-old left Stoke City during the summer and succeeds Ian Holloway, who stepped down at Selhurst Park on 23 October.

A Crystal Palace statement read: “Pulis will take charge of the first team following today’s (Saturday) game against Hull City, with caretaker boss Keith Millen remaining in the dugout at the KC Stadium.

“Pulis will watch the match against the Tigers from the stands, with his first game in charge of the club coming against Norwich City on Saturday 30th November.

“The experienced 55-year-old has agreed terms at Selhurst Park following a six-month break from management, since his highly-successful spell at Stoke City came to an end in May 2013.”
