Former Charlton Athletic goalkeeper set to join Crystal Palace backroom staff

Former Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Dean Kiely is in the mix to become the new goalkeeping coach at Crystal Palace.

The Eagles are understood to have identified the Salford-born 47-year-old as a possible addition to fill their backroom vacancy.

Kiely is currently employed by Preston North End but worked with Palace manager Roy Hodgson at West Bromwich Albion.

Kiely played over 200 games for Charlton after signing from Bury in 1999, his first campaign in SE7 seeing the South London club race to the Championship title.

Palace have been looking to bring someone in with Martyn Margetson following Sam Allardyce to Everton.

Kiely won 11 caps for the Republic of Ireland.
