Ebanks-Blake to join Crystal Palace?

Crystal Palace have agreed a fee with Wolverhampton Wanderers for striker Sylvain Ebanks-Blake according to reports from the Birmingham Mail.

The twenty-six year old is keen on a move to Selhurst Park, and the deal is set to be concluded in the next few days, once manager Dean Saunders has recruited a replacement, which is rumoured to be Sunderland striker Connor Wickham.

Ebanks-Blake is out of contract at Molineux at the end of the season, and will join up with former manager Ian Holloway at the Eagles after he sold him to the Championship side from Plymouth in 2008 for £1.5 million.

The news of a move for the powerful forward, comes after Sheffield United forward Nick Blackman turned down a move to the club after a fee of just over £1 million was agreed for his services late last week.

With Wilfried Zaha’s move to Manchester United being completed for a reported £10 million plus add-ons, the club have money to spend this window, in their quest for promotion to the Premier League.
