Palace knocked back in forward move

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace reportedly made a late move to land Celtic star Moussa Dembele on deadline day.

The Eagles have been linked with the 21-year-old Frenchman for some time and the Scottish Sun reports the club enquired about the possibility of signing Dembele on Wednesday.

However, Celtic made it clear they had no intention of selling the young forward and as such no official bid was lodged by Palace.

The Premier League club could be tempted to move for Dembele in the summer however, and Celtic may be willing to listen to offers as they will have time to line up a replacement – something they would have been unable to do in the closing stages of the January transfer window.
