South London Press transfer deadline day blog – Palace set to confirm Blackburn midfielder – South London News

A deal for Sam Johnstone to join Nottingham Forest could collapse with Palace’s Premier League rivals reportedly in talks with Strasbourg over a deal to sign Matz Sels.

The England keeper has lost his spot in Roy Hodgson’s starting 11 to Dean Henderson, with the Euros taking place this summer.

Crystal Palace are set to confirm the signing of Blackburn midfielder Adam Wharton.

The Eagles submitted a bid which could rise to £22million with add-ons and the 19-year-old.

Palace’s first bid of £15m, with £3.5m in add-ons, was turned down by Rovers.

He will become Palace’s second signing of the window after right-back Daniel Munoz.

RWD Molenbeek are eyeing a deadline day loan move for Crystal Palace winger Malcolm Ebiowei, the South London Press understands.

The 20-year-old has featured five times for the first team since joining on a free transfer from Derby County.

Tayo Adaramola joined the Belgian Pro League side on loan earlier in January.

It is being reported that Chelsea are willing to loan out striker Armando Broja.

The Athletic are reporting that the Blues will let him leave on a straight loan with a significant fee.

Fulham have shown interest during the window.

Crystal Palace are eyeing a deadline day move for West Ham’s Maxwel Cornet, the South London Press understands.

The 27-year-old has only featured twice in the Premier League this season for the Hammers, scoring against Sheffield United earlier this month when he made his first start of the season.

Ex-Burnley winger Cornet can also play at left-back, which would provide cover for Tyrick Mitchell.

The Ivory Coast international joined the east Londoners at the start of the 2022-23 season and has recorded 31 outings to his name.

Palace also remain keen on Marsille’s Iliman Ndiaye but it is yet to be seen whether they can secure a deal before tonight’s deadline.
