Eagles eye Hugill swoop

Premier League

Crystal Palace are in talks with Preston over the signing of highly-rated striker Jordan Hugill.

Rivals in the Championship are thought to have been interested in the 25-year-old, with Leeds United linked over recent weeks.
Preston are reluctant to sell but could have their resolve tested before the January window closes, with Palace set to put in a bid for the forward who has scored 10 goals in 29 games this season.
Eagles boss Roy Hodgson is eager to bolster his attacking options at Selhurst Park and Palace are hoping they can push through a deal for Hugill before the window shuts on Wednesday.
