Dobbie is expected to leave Palace this summer as he finds himself well down the pecking order in Tony Pulis' first-team plans.

The 31-year-old, who joined Palace in 2013 after an initial loan spell, made only two appearances last season for the Eagles before going out on loan to Blackpool for his third spell at Bloomfield Road.

A number of clubs have been linked with a move for Dobbie, but League One new boys Fleetwood are hoping to win the race for the Scot's signature.

Fleetwood boss Graham Alexander is thought to be a big admirer of Dobbie and sees him as a key addition to his plans for life in League One as they aim to mount another bid for promotion this season.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
