Tony Pulis has parted ways with Crystal Palace by mutual consent, ahead of their Premier League opener against Arsenal tomorrow, according to the BBC.

The 56-year-old, who put in his resignation after meeting club chairman Steve Parish yesterday, was frustrated after the Eagles failed to sign a number of his preferred transfer targets this summer.

Assistant manager Keith Millen will be in temporary charge of the club for their league fixture against the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

Pulis took charge of Crystal Palace in November last year when the Selhurst Park outfit were struggling at the bottom of the table.

However, the former Stoke City manager, who succeeded Ian Holloway in the Crystal Palace hotseat, guided the club to an 11th place finish with 45 points, and was as a result strongly tipped to be named Manager of the Year.  


But it is now believed that Pulis and Parish disagreed about their vision for Crystal Palace and as a result the former has left the club.

Crystal Palace have yet to make an official announcement however.
