Our Crystal Palace fans here in the Transfer Tavern are eager to see their club sign some more players during this window and, according to The Sun, that may be about to happen.
The Eagles have done anything but soar this season and are well ensconced in a relegation battle with the other basement clubs this year.
They lost once again at the weekend at home to Everton leaving Sam Allardyce under no illusions that he’s got a huge job on his hands.
He’ll feel he can do it, however, and after helping Sunderland stay up last season he’s looking to take one of their key players – Patrick Van Aanholt.
The Dutchman has been a good performer at left back this year for the Black Cats and our resident Sunderland fans would be sad to see him leave.
If Allardyce can convince him to move, though, Palace will be getting a player bang in form and the report believes it could go through in the next few days.
Our landlord thinks he’d be a top signing, but reckons it would mark the end of the line for Sunderland this year.
