Peter Taylor will not take charge of England under-21s´ next friendly against Holland as he is keen to revive Crystal Palace.

Taylor guided the under-21s to next summer´s European Championship finals - but he has had less success at Palace since taking over in the summer, and the club are 18th in the Coca-Cola Championship.

"I will not be taking charge of the next friendly," Taylor told PA Sport. "I need to be at Crystal Palace, and the timing of it is not right."
