Crystal Palace defender Jairo Riedewald is a target for the club, according to the Times.

The Dutchman is deemed to be surplus to requirements by the Eagles and has already turned down a transfer to Swansea this summer, with his heart set on staying in the Premier League.

When I asked fans whether we should make a move for the 21-year-old, two-thirds of you thought he would be a decent signing:

Riedewald’s ability to play a number of positions could have made him a good addition as Rafa Benitez looks to strengthen at both left-back and centre-back. However, the Chronicle say that sources have told them that the club are not pursuing the Dutch international.

It seems that despite there being just a day left being the transfer window closes, the club are still mulling over who to target. Federico Fernandez is a player who looks to be a possibility but Swansea are looking for £10m for the Argentinian defender, according to Wales Online.

The Championship club have reportedly already rejected a loan offer from us for the centre-back as they hold out for a permanent sale.

  • For god sake sign the bloody player, this penny pinching market trading is simply wrong. You’ve got the damn attitude a deal as to be done. 29 year old your to old what about experience, then if your 19 your to young or inexperienced and a deal must be done. What the hell are you looking for.

    • would be sad to see him leave Palace but he’s a fine player (purchased by former Manager Frank DeBoer. Never let the side down when he played last season but at that age he needs to be in the side.Swansa have also been ‘looking’ at him.He’d do well at Newcastle in my view
