Roy Hodgson will not work after Crystal Palace

Transfer news & rumours LIVE: Rodrygo wants Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid

Roy Hodgson is "extremely doubtful" he will be job hunting no matter how or when his second spell at Crystal Palace comes to an end. The 76-year-old, who is under contract until the end of the season, is well aware of rumours that his bosses at the relegation-threatened, injury-plagued south London side are actively seeking his replacement.

On Friday he said: "The fact is that this is my last spell in football. When (Palace chairman) Steve (Parish) and (sporting director) Doug (Freedman) came and said 'We think we'd like you and Ray to come back for another season' I said 'That's great, I'd love to do it'. But then, there was never any question, well, I'll come back and then after six months and we'll discuss a new contract. It was all nice and clear that I would come back and I would try to do the job that they asked me to do for one year, and then I will stop. Will I seek a new job after that? I would say that is extremely doubtful."

However, Hodgson tempered that sentiment by adding: "But then, why should I say necessarily I don't want to work in football, because there might be someone who offers me something to do within the world of football that actually suits me."

I never felt so much love for the fans like here. They've been unbelievable for me and my family so I try to play for fans. So I hope I can keep going here for as long as possible."

Nice star Jean-Clair Todibo has dropped a major hint over a potential summer transfer amid links with Manchester United and Chelsea.

The ex-Barcelona man said: "I am at Nice and we're having a great season. I don't have my head elsewhere. If I did it would be difficult for me personally and for the group too. I feel really good at Nice. We'll see what happens in the summer but we're not there yet. I don't want to get ahead of myself. I don't want to give false hope. For now, I'm here at Nice. Football moves quickly, you never know what's going to happen. I'll wait until the summer to make my decision. If my decision is to stay, I'll announce it, if it is to leave, I'll announce it too and I'll thank everyone, but we're not there yet."

Todibo added: "There are important games coming up. The goal is that if it is to be my final season at Nice, then I want to leave here having done something beautiful with the club. The supporters and the club deserve players who give everything on the pitch, and to achieve something substantial. Personally, if I am to leave, I want to leave something good behind."
