DAN Petrescu has rubbished claims he held talks with Crystal Palace about becoming their new manager over the weekend. The Romanian became the bookmakers' favourite to take the Selhurst Park hotseat, but national reports alleged talks had broken down, possibly due to wage demands. However, the former Chelsea defender has broken his silence and says any talk of arriving in SE25 may have come through his agent. "I have not been in talks with any club being under contract with another outfit," said Petrescu. "And I'm not set to do so in the future. Probably the clubs contacted my agent, not me. "I love England and I'm really pleased with the fact that English clubs still remember me, but currently a move for me to England is absolutely impossible as I'm still under contract with Dynamo (Moscow)". Tony Pulis is now said to be in "advanced talks" with Palace after initial discussions broke down last month.
