Former Celtic frontrunner's last hope of landing an English Premier League job this summer is all but gone with Lucien Favre closing in on Crystal Palace.
The 64-year-old Swiss emerged as a shock contender in recent days and is now on the verge of being confirmed as Roy Hodgson's successor at Selhurst Park.
Favre was also linked with the Parkhead vacancy but it was Howe who appeared destined forbefore talks came to an end after months of communication on both sides.

Dean Windass reckons that Eddie Howe would fit the bill at Crystal Palace but has questioned whether the location could prove a potential barrier. A brief spell at Burnley aside, the former Bournemouth boss has lived on the south coast for the best part of three decades as both a player and manager. But Howe, who has tasted success in 56 of his 190 matches in the Premier League, has been linked to several vacancies since stepping down as Cherries manager just less than 12 months ago following their relegation, and held talks about replacing Neil Lennon at Celtic.

And former England international Darren Bent believes Howe is being overlooked for the big jobs because he is a homegrown manager.
Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: “If Eddie Howe was to become Spurs manager then I think there would be a lot of snobbery. ‘Why are we appointing Eddie Howe?’
“I think that type of manager, what he has done at Bournemouth, building and getting them playing good football. I think that’s exactly what they need.”
