Palace eyeing £7 million move for impressive PL man

Our Crystal Palace fans here in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see Sam Allardyce do some deals and, according to The Sun, they may be about to get their wish.

The Eagles have had a pretty dire campaign so far and are hovering above the relegation zone despite the amount of good players they have available to them.

That factor led to Alan Pardew getting sacked towards the end of 2016 and, with ‘Big Sam’ now in charge, our resident Palace punters want to see a brighter 2017.

Things might be about to start, too, with the Palace manager reportedly interested in bringing Patrick Van Aanholt to the club for £7 million from his old side Sunderland.

The Dutch fullback has impressed this season, even if Sunderland haven’t, and behind Jermain Defoe he has been one of the Black Cats’ key goal-scoring threats – not bad for a left back.

Our landlord reckons this would be a top signing for two reasons. One because Palace need a new left back and two because the former Chelsea man is actually a decent footballer.

Thoughts on Van Aanholt, Palace fans? Let us know below!
