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.

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
