Ibrahim Amadou’s failed move to Crystal Palace – how it went down

L’Équipe report today that Lille had given Ibrahim Amadou the ok to join Crystal Palace on a loan with obligation to buy deal worth over €15m, thus the Ligue 1 side’s captain travelled to London last night.

There he underwent a medical with Crystal Palace, with the aim of finding an agreement before midnight. But Lille remained inflexible vis-à-vis a departure, with manager Christophe Galtier demanding that no players be sold so that he can focus all their resources on remaining in Ligue 1.
