The former Newcastle and Crystal Palace boss could be making his way to MLS.
Alan Pardew is being sounded out as a potential replacement for Alan Koch at FC Cincinnati.
The expansion club has struggled to establish themselves, currently sitting at the bottom of MLS's Eastern Conference having won only three of their first 16 fixtures.
With just over half the season remaining, the club is now on the lookout for a more experienced coach. According to ESPN, former Newcastle and Crystal Palace boss, Pardew, is a 'strong candidate' for the MLS role.
Pardew is perhaps best known in England for his time at Newcastle. The now 57-year-old made such a strong impression in his first year at the Magpies (finishing fifth in the Premier League) that he was offered an eight-year contract.
He's taken charge of two other clubs since then, first reaching the FA Cup final with Crystal Palace before suffering an irreversable slump in fortunes before most recently a torrid spell at West Brom that ended the club's eight-year stay in the Premier League.
Pardew has been out of management since, spending the last 18 months working as a pundit.
Another former Premier League manager, Aitor Karanka - most recently released by Nottingham Forest - is also reported to be in the running, alongside United States Under-20 manager Tab Ramos.
