Two defenders with Premier League experience edge closer to Selhurst Park

A penalty from Wilfried Zaha gave The Eagles victory over Ipswich at Portman road in an entertaining pre-season friendly on Saturday.

And off the pitch, there seems to be more positive activity on the horizon with the new season edging closer.

Reports suggest Manager Patrick Vieira is close to sealing a £20million deal for 25-year-old Lyon centre-back Joachim Andersen. The Denmark international was on loan at Fulham last season.

And on the subject of loans, Palace continue to be linked to a player who was on loan at Liverpool last season – Schalke’s Ozan Kabak, with a deal thought to be around £10 million in the pipeline.
