Palace prepared to beat West Ham to Dendoncker

  Palace prepared to beat West Ham to Dendoncker Crystal Palace are preparing a summer bid for Anderlecht player Leander Dendoncker. Sport Witness report that they are desperate to beat West Ham to the signing of the 23-year-old. As long as Palace stay in the Premier League, they are expected to bid for the Belgian defensive midfielder. And with Roy Hodgson’s side sitting six points above the relegation zone, safety is almost a certainty. During the January window, Dendoncker was linked with first Everton and then West Ham. The Hammers interest was well followed by Belgian media, but a move failed to materialise. The Eagles were also claimed to have made a bid, with Anderlecht’s general manager saying they put an offer in at the end of the window, making it too late for negotiations to take place. They are now favourites to sign the player in the summer though. HLN, a popular Belgian newspaper, have reported that they would want at least £15 million for the player who is desperate to move to the Premier League. Dendoncker has four caps for the Belgian national team, and has appeared over 100 times for Anderlecht.

Stuart Pearce, West Ham’s assistant manager, reportedly spent last weekend in Belgium watching the highly rated youngster Leander Dendoncker for a second time this season.

According to Het Nieuwsblad, Pearce was spotted in the stands of the Jan Breydel Stadium for Anderlecht’s 2-1 victory over Club Brugge.

Dendoncker was first scouted by the Hammers back in January, when he played at centre half against Genk and the Hammers attempted to snatch the highly rated star from the grasps of Manchester United, who were also very intrested in him at the time.

However, the London based outfit couldn’t raise the funds needed to capture Dendoncker so the deal fell apart on Transfer Deadline Day.

Recent reports from Het Nieuwsblad suggest that Mark Coucke (Anderlecht’s new owner) has promised Dendoncker a summer move in recognition of his services this past year.

Youri Tielemans was allowed to leave for Monaco last summer, but the club would not allow both superstars to leave at once, leaving Dendoncker’s path to West Ham blocked, until this summer at the earliest.

Reports play down Liverpool's apparent interest in Jack Butland .
James Pearce, reporter from the Liverpool Echo, believes that Liverpool will not be pursuing a deal for Stoke City goalkeeper, Jack Butland. The England international has been relegated at Stoke and will most likely be looking for a new club if he wants to keep his dream of being England’s number one goalkeeper alive. Pearce had this to say about the rumours arising again: “Earlier in the season, I was told that talk of LFC signing Butland was nonsense and I’m not aware of that position changing. Personally, I don’t think he would be an improvement on Karius.” Liverpool have had their fair share of goalkeeping problems this year but Loris Karius has improved incredibly since the start of the season where he was being shot down by critics after a string of poor performances. However, Liverpool are likely to let Simon Mignolet leave in the summer so unless they want to go into next season with Danny Ward as second choice, then they will need to sign a replacement for the outgoing Belgian international.
