Report: Crystal Palace already plotting summer move for Hull City midfielder Mohamed Diame

Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Hull City's Mohamed Diame.

According to a report on TeamTalk, Hull City midfielder Mohamed Diame is continuing to attract the attention of Crystal Palace.

Diame was reportedly tracked by Palace throughout the January transfer window, but no deal was agreed between the two clubs.

However, it is believed that Alan Pardew’s side are planning to return for the central midfielder at the end of the season.

Pardew allegedly believes that Diame’s power and energy would add a lot to his midfield ranks at Selhurst Park, and plans are apparently already under way to bring the 28-year-old to London in the summer.

Diame has been one of Hull’s key players so far this season and Steve Bruce is understood to be keen to keep hold of the former West Ham United man, but he may be powerless to resist big offers if his side are not promoted.

Hull are currently sat at the top of the Championship table, but if they fail to make it back into the Premier League, Palace are set to test their resolve.

Diame has only 18 months left on his contract at the KC Stadium, meaning Hull may be forced to sell if they cannot get him to commit his future.
