Palace boss Neil Warnock is expected to be busy before the close of the transfer window and he has made a new left-back one of his top priorities.
Queens Park Rangers' Armand Traore was linked with a move to Selhurst Park, but Fryers is thought to have been Warnock's top target.
The 21-year-old is well down the pecking order at Tottenham with Danny Rose and summer signing Ben Davies ahead of him in Mauricio Pochettino's first-team plans.
Palace are thought to have agreed a fee with Tottenham for former Manchester United youngster Fryers, with the player expected to undergo a medical at Selhurst Park on deadline day.
Ah, proof that not every arrogant youngster who thinks he's good enough to demand a starting place at United turns out to be Paul Pogba.- tom33
