Amido Balde: Palace have "never heard of him"

The newly-promoted Eagles were believed to have tabled an offer for the 22-year-old, who has also been linked with SPL champions Celtic.

Vitoria president Julio Mendes said earlier this week: "Our obligation is to obtain the maximum profit for the club and if Palace offer more money it would be an error not to study the offer."

But Palace co-owner Steve Parish has insisted that no contact has been made with the Portuguese club regarding a bid for the forward.

"We haven't made an offer," Parish told the Croydon Advertiser.

"It is a total fabrication and we have never heard of him or spoken to his representatives."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
