Crystal Palace are reportedly close to completing a deal for Watford midfielder Will Hughes for a fee of around £6million.
Hughes has made 107 appearances for the Hornets during a four-year spell at Vicarage Road since signing for them in 2017 from Derby County.
Hughes has refused to sign a new contract and has been training with the U23’s.
The BBC are reporting that the fee could rise to £10m with add-ons.
The website adds that the 26-year-old is expected to have his medical with the Eagles on Friday.
Hughes would become Patrick Vieira’s sixth summer signing since taking charge at the South London club.
