According to reports from French publication Le 10 Sport, Crystal Palace are currently in advanced negotiations to sign Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko.

The transfer speculation surrounding the future of Sissoko this summer has proven to be a very tiring one and with the domestic season set to commence soon, both the player and Newcastle will most certainly want to sort out the situation as soon as possible.

It seemed like Sissoko would be set for a big money move to Spanish giants Real Madrid but Marca went on to reveal a couple of days ago that Los Blancos do not hold any interest whatsoever in signing the French international this summer.

While Real may have dropped out of the race, a host of other clubs remains interest in signing Sissoko and reports from Le 10 Sport recently claimed that Palace had joined in the race to recruit the 26-year-old.
