Crystal Palace astounding starting XI if January transfer rumours are true

Crystal Palace have gone about their business quietly so far this month but there are some irons in the fire.

It had looked to be a quiet January transfer window for Crystal Palace as the market opened once again in the New Year but links have been starting to bubble up in recent days.

The club may be cautious about splashing too much cash with a potential managerial change in the summer, but won't overlook any tempting deals.

Here's what the Crystal Palace starting XI could look like if this month's transfer rumours are true.
