Crystal Palace in race to sign Sunderland star and youngster moves out on loan

Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in one of Sunderland’s star players - plus, an academy prospect has moved out on loan to a club in the EFL.

Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace are gearing up for a potentially hectic January transfer window, with rumours of incomings and outgoings abundant. Who will the Eagles look to bolster their ranks with?

Palace are reportedly interested in acquiring the services of a Scottish international who currently plays his football for Sunderland. Despite this, they are far from the only club in the chase.

Meanwhile, a young academy prospect has been shipped out on loan to a club in the EFL. The player will officially make the move on January 1.

Crystal Palace “monitoring” Ross Stewart

Crystal Palace are one of several clubs interested in signing Ross Stewart, according to Keith Downie on Twitter. Among the other clubs reportedly in the hunt for his signature are Blackburn Rovers, Stoke City, Rangers and Brentford.

With Jean-Phillipe Mateta and Odsonne Édouard already on the Eagles’ books, it is unclear how much playing time Stewart would realistically receive at Selhurst Park. Additionally, Palace are yet to submit an official bid for the Scottish centre forward.

Youngster joins Shrewsbury Town on loan

20-year-old Killian Phillips has agreed a deal to join Shrewsbury on loan until the end of the season report Crystal Palace’s official website. The move will allow Phillips to develop and enjoy some regular first team football - he has made just one appearance for Palace this season, in a 2-0 win over Oxford United in the Carabao Cup.

Academy Director at Crystal Palace, Gary Issott, said: “This is a tremendous opportunity for Killian to continue his development. We have been pleased with the work ethic and dedication he has shown at Under-21s level this season, which helped him earn his debut at the club. League One is an excellent level and I hope Killian can seize this opportunity and come back an even better player.”
