The latest Crystal Palace news and rumours on Sunday.

Crystal Palace youngster Malachi Boateng is reportedly heading to Queen’s Park on loan.

The midfielder is set to head out the exit door on a temporary basis to get some experience under his belt.

Boateng, 20, is yet to leave Selhurst Park on loan so far in his short career.

According to journalist Alan Nixon on his Patreon, the academy graduate is moving to Scotland to link up with Owen Coyle’s Queen’s Park.

The Glasgow club play their football in the Scottish Championship after gaining promotion from League One in the last campaign via the play-offs.

Boateng has been on the books at Crystal Palace since 2012 and has risen up through the ranks of the Premier League club.
