Report: Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak linked with China

Mile Jedinak has made just five Premier League starts for Crystal Palace this season.

According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak is a transfer target for a number of Chinese clubs.

Teams in the Chinese Premier League have made huge strides in the most recent transfer window, with the likes of Chelsea’s Ramires moving to the league.

West Ham United's Dimitri Payet and Nikica Jelavic could also move to Asia, according to reports from Sky Sports, in the coming weeks.

And it is believed that Jedinak could follow suit, with his future at Palace now in doubt.

Norwich City and Sunderland both tried to sign the Australian in January, but their efforts were rebuffed.

However, there is a feeling that Alan Pardew could be more open to allowing the defensive midfielder to depart at the end of the season.

Despite wearing the captain’s armband, the 31-year-old has only started five times in the Premier League this term, with Pardew seemingly having preferred options in central midfield.
