Report: Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Kortney Hause wanted by Crystal Palace

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

The Eagles are looking for Damien Delaney alternatives, according to reports.

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Kortney Hause is wanted by Crystal Palace, according to a report in Monday's Mirror.

The tabloid claims the Eagles are keen to replace veteran centre-back Damien Delaney and have added Hause to their list of Championship targets.

Brighton & Hove Albion's Lewis Dunk and Reading's Jake Cooper are also said to have caught the eye of Palace boss Alan Pardew.

London-born Hause was on the books of West Ham United as a youngster and moved to Wolves in 2014 following a successful spell at Wycombe Wanderers.

The 20-year-old starred for Kenny Jackett's men in his debut campaign, leading to a first England Under-21 call-up last year, although injury has hindered his progress this term.

Hause, who is left-footed, boasts impressive pace and can also play at full-back if required.

The former Gillingham loanee signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract in February.

However, a return to the capital, along with the possibility of European football next term courtesy of Palace's participation in next month's FA Cup final, could lure Hause away from Molineux.
