Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer wants to bid for Jose Fonte in an attempt to save his job, the Mirror say.

The Dutchman is said to be keen to take former Eagles defender Fonte, 33, back to Selhurst Park from West Ham.

Fonte, who had a two-year spell at Palace and joined West Ham from Southampton earlier this year, has been overlooked by Slaven Bilic and there has been speculation that he could move.

It comes amid reports that both Bilic and Palace boss De Boer are in danger of being sacked.

West Ham manager Bilic will reportedly hold talks with the club’s co-owner David Sullivan today and is said to be in danger of being fired after a poor start to the season.

The Sun also say De Boer could be shown the door after just three matches in charge of Palace.

It is claimed that Palace’s players are baffled by his tactics but that the Dutchman is refusing to change.

Meanwhile, Kevin Wimmer is set to undergo a medical ahead of a move from Tottenham to Stoke City, the Mirror say.

Palace were tipped to sign the Austrian defender and West Brom showed an interest.

The Mirror say Stoke have agreed a deal with Spurs and will pay £15m plus a further £3m in add-ons.
