ALAN Pardew has finally become Crystal Palace’s new manager – and ended his four-year tenure at Newcastle United.
The appointment is yet to be confirmed by the two clubs.
But BBC Sport report that Pardew tonight signed a contract at Selhurst Park.
The 53-year-old had been given permission to speak to his former club early in the week.
Newcastle have accepted compensation package worth a reported £3.5m.
Pardew will take charge of Palace for Sunday’s FA Cup tie away to Dover Athletic.
