Crystal Palace ‘targeting’ teenager transfer whilst update on Cheick Doucoure’s visa

All the latest Crystal Palace news and rumours on Thursday.

Crystal Palace have played two friendlies so far as they look to boost up their fitness levels.

The Eagles’ first pre-season clash was against League One side Accrington Stanley which ended in a 1-1 draw.

They then played fellow London club Millwall and ended up winning 5-4 against the Lions.

Next up for Patrick Viera’s side is a tricky test against Liverpool tomorrow.

Here is a look at all the latest news coming out of the club today....

Colwill boost

Crystal Palace are thought to be one of the frontrunners in the race to sign Chelsea defender Levi Colwill this summer.

The youngster spent last season on loan in the Championship at Huddersfield Town to get some experience under his belt and helped the Terriers reach the play-off final.

The Evening Standard report that the Eagles are ‘targeting’ a swoop for him in this window.

Zaha happy where he is

Viera has responded to speculation linking key winger Wilfried Zaha with a move away.

The attacker scored 15 goals in all competitons last term to help his side finish 12th in the top flight.

In an interview with Sky Sports, his boss said he is “is happy in our football club”.

New signing waiting for visa

Palace made Mali international Cheick Doucoure their third signing of the transfer window earlier this week.

The midfielder has made the move to Selhurst Park from French side Lens and will give the club more competition and depth in the middle of the park.

London News Online report he is waiting for his visa, hence why he hasn’t flown out with the rest of the squad to Singapore, but he could play against Ipswich Town this weekend.
