Lee worked with Allardyce, who was sacked as England manager in September following a newspaper sting, at the national team and also before that at Bolton Wanderers. He left the England set-up in December.

“I am looking forward to once again working with Sammy,” Allardyce told the club website ( after Lee’s appointment as assistant manager.

“It was great working with him at Bolton and is someone who has a wealth of experience both at club and international level over the years as well.”

Allardyce was appointed Palace manager on Dec. 23 on a 2-1/2 year contract, replacing the sacked Alan Pardew. The South Londoners are currently fourth from bottom, a point clear of Sunderland and Swansea City.
