Report: Crystal Palace keen on signing Wolverhampton Wanderers prospect Kortney Hause

Crystal Palace are reportedly pursuing Wolves defender Kortney Hause.

According to The Times, Crystal Palace are interested in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Kortney Hause - but are willing to wait until the summer to move for him.

Palace have made one move so far during the January transfer window, snapping up teenage forward Randell Williams from Tower Hamlets in a deal which has flown under the radar.

The youngster will be a reserve team player for now, but Palace now need to bring in players to aid their first-team, with many fans wanting to see a striker brought in.

Now though, The Times claim that Palace are interested in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers prospect Kortney Hause, but won't necessarily move for him this month.

Hause, 20, joined Wolves from Wycombe Wandererers in January 2014, has long been tipped as a potential star of the future, having played for the England Under-20's and Under-21's.

Capable of playing at left back or centre back, Hause has a bright future ahead of him, and Palace may be looking to hand him a reunion with ex-Wolves team-mate Bakary Sako, who left Molineux for Selhurst Park last summer - but they are currently only considering him for the summer transfer window, rather than immediately.

Wolves have just sold star striker Benik Afobe to Bournemouth, and won't want to lose another player to the Premier League this month - but Palace are seemingly willing to bide their time to get their man at the end of the season, with competition needed for Pape Souare at left back.
