Tony Pulis in double swoop on Tottenham and Cardiff

Transfer window dealings are picking up pace at Crystal Palace as the Eagles have agreed fees for both Frazier Campbell and Gylfi Sigurdsson, reports the Daily Express. Tony Pulis has lined up the Cardiff forward and the Tottenham midfielder as he looks to further strengthen an up and coming Premier League side.

The £600,000 release clause in Campbell’s contract is thought to have been met by the Selhurst Park club, as they look to bring in a promising attacker for a very reasonable fee. Campbell began his career at Manchester United, but has since played for Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland. At 26 years old, he has travelled more than many in his career, and could now be looking for a permanent move to London.

In the case of Sigurdsson, the transfer fee is likely to be considerably higher, as Tottenham will be letting an important player leave their ranks. Last season the Icelandic international played 25 times for the Lilywhites in the Premier League, and scored 5 goals. Some Spurs fans might question Mauricio Pochettino’s willingness to let the player leave, but the situation looks likely to benefit Palace.

In neither situation have the club reached personal terms with the players yet, although there are no problems anticipated. An official announcement from all parties involved is expected in the coming days, as Palace look to draw up personal contracts enticing enough to bring the two players into their squad.
