Gylfi Sigurdsson: Could be heading to Selhurst Park

Gylfi Sigurdsson: Could be heading to Selhurst Park

Eagles boss Tony Pulis has stepped up his search for new faces after returning from a training camp in Austria and is hoping to pull off an ambitious double signing.

Sigurdsson struggled to hold down a regular starting role with Spurs last season and new manager Mauricio Pochettino appears willing to let him leave White Hart Lane.

The Iceland international, who joined from Swansea City in the summer of 2012, is thought to have a price tag of around £8m.

Campbell could not prevent Cardiff from suffering relegation in 2013/14, despite scoring nine goals, but is set for a swift return to the Premier League.

Reports suggest there is a £600,000 release clause for the 26-year-old, although Palace still have to agree wages with the former Manchester man and Sigurdsson. 

Campbell's Cardiff team-mate Steven Caulker has also been linked with a move to Selhurst Park, but Queens Park Rangers and Southampton are believed to have joined the race for the centre-back's signature.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
