Palace set to agree £8m Riedewald deal

  Palace set to agree £8m Riedewald deal Crystal Palace are set to agree a £8m deal to sign Ajax defender Jairo Riedewald. According to Sky Sports , Palace are closing in on an agreement with Ajax, which is expected to be made later this week. Ajax’s director of football – former Arsenal midfielder – Marc Overmars is willing to let Reidewald go due to his lack of game time last season. Reidewald was deployed in a holding midfield role, despite being known as more of a right-back or central defender. The 20-year-old is now expected to sign for Palace in the coming days and link up with his compatriot Frank De Boer for pre-season. The defender could be set to compete with Joel Ward for a spot at right-back next season as Palace look to kick on from a disappointing campaign last year. Crystal Palace completed the signing of Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan from Chelsea earlier today. He will wear the number eight shirt.

Frank de Boer appears to be keen on lowering the average age of his Palace squad and the addition of Chambers would certainly help to achieve that.

However, it’s unlikely that the Eagles would be willing to part with £20m to land Chambers.

Newcastle set to make Townsend move .
Newcastle are set to make a fresh move for Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend. According to the Croydon Advertiser, Newcastle are set to re-ignite their interest in the winger this summer. The Toon have been touted with a swoop for Townsend a number of times this year, with talk of a move to come ahead of next season. Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez is said to be a fan of Townsend and is keen to reunite himself with the skilful Englishman. It has been just over a year since Townsend left Newcastle – to join Crystal Palace. Townsend quit Newcastle after their relegation from the Premier League last year and signed for Palace in a £13m deal. There is no mention of how much Newcastle would have to pay in order to get Townsend back. However, Palace are likely to want some profit on their original investment. Townsend made 13 Premier League appearances for Newcastle, scoring four goals.
