Martin Andresen: Valerenga coach is an option to consider for Crystal Palace
Sky Sports understands Valerenga coach Martin Andresen is one of the names in contention for the vacant Crystal Palace manager's position.
Andresen has carved out an impressive reputation during his time in charge of Valerenga and is highly respected for his work with the Norwegian club.
He has helped to transform Valerenga's Academy system and has generated a sizeable transfer windfall during his tenure.
The 35-year-old has experience of English football after playing for Wimbledon and Blackburn Rovers, and he was also an established Norway international.
With Dougie Freedman having left to take charge at Bolton Wanderers, Championship rivals Palace are assessing candidates to replace the Scot.
Plymouth Argyle boss Carl Fletcher and former manager Steve Coppell are reported to be under consideration and Andresen's forward-thinking approach is another option for the Eagles, with Norwegian coaches currently in vogue.
Blackburn Rovers have appointed his compatriot Henning Berg as manager this week, while former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been targeted by several English clubs for his eye-catching work at Molde.
