Crystal Palace & Victor Camarasa
Crystal Palace have been rather slow to move in the summer transfer market, but the Eagles’ activity is picking up speed.
After penning Gary Cahill to a two-year deal at Selhurst Park, Roy Hodgson is now set on boosting his midfield options.
Victor Camarasa, who spent last season on loan with Cardiff City, is poised to return to the Premier League.
As confirmed by Sky Sports, Camarasa is set to have his medical at Crystal Palace.
