Newcastle United and Crystal Palace have agreed a fee of around 12.9 million for the transfer of Andros Townsend, according to reports from L’Equipe

Following Newcastle United’s relegation into the Championship, it was widely reported that the Magpies would be losing a host of their star players this summer and Andros Townsend in particular, had been consistently linked with a move away from St. James’ Park.

Townsend heading to Palace

The likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Southampton have all been credited with an interest in Townsend and recently, even Crystal Palace emerged as one of the candidates to secure the services of the 24-year-old.

Now in a development to the story, revelations can be made that Palace have won the race to sign Townsend after agreeing a fee of around £12.9 million with Newcastle United.

Palace close to signing Batshuayi as well

L’Equipe state that Palace have moved on to activate the release clause of Towsend and have already gone on to reach an agreement with the player as well.

In addition to Townsend, Palace are also believed to have agreed a £31.6 million fee with French side Marseille over the signing of Belgian international Michy Batshuayi.

Due to his fine campaign with Marseille last term, Batshuayi had been coveted by a host of Premier League clubs and a bit surprisingly, it is Crystal Palace who have managed to agree a deal to sign the 22-year-old sensation.
