According to our colleagues at 20 Minutes, Crystal Palace’s deal to sign Lille defender Pape Souaré will be held off until at least Friday.
Local journalist Francois Launay claims that there are still a few details to finalise. GFFN understands that these details are minor and are most probably to do with coordinating a full medical, with the player having participated at the African Cup of Nations for Senegal.
GFFN maintains that a deal and provisional contract has been agreed. The transfer fee is €4.6m plus bonuses.
