Jonathan Parr: Available as a free agent following release by Crystal Palace

The Norwegian full-back has been dropped into the free agent pool at the end of his contract at Crystal Palace.

The 25-year-old is known to be keen on securing another English club after three years at Selhurst Park.

Bolton boss Dougie Freedman, the man who took him to Palace in 2011, has expressed a desire to be reunited with Parr at the Reebok Stadium.

It is, however, Ipswich who have held positive talks regarding a possible deal and would appear to have edged to the front of the queue.

“If Jonathan wants to go there, there is a big chance it will happen,” Roger Parr, Jonathan’s father and advisor, told Aftenposten.

“At Ipswich, he will be first choice. Jonathan has had a meeting with the manager (Mick McCarthy) and they had a positive talk.

“We know that it is a really good club with a nice stadium and good supporters. That is important.

“Everything looks positive.”

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
