Crystal Palace teenager Will Donkin is being chased by Chinese Super League duo Hebei CFFC and Shenzhen, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

The Chinese Super League transfer window is still open and Palace midfielder Donkin is on the wanted list of both Hebei CFFC and Shenzhen.

 

Donkin is big news in the Far East after breaking into the Chinese Taipei national team at the age of 16 and he is now a regular for his country on the international stage winning 11 caps.

The midfielder's performances for the Chinese Taipei national team have brought him to the attention of Super League duo Hebei CFFC and Shenzhen as they see Donkin as a potential star in the making.

Donkin is highly-rated at Palace after joining the club from Premier League rivals Chelsea in the summer of 2017.

The skilful attacker has yet to break into Palace's first-team, but he is highly-regarded within the corridors of power at Selhurst Park.

Palace would be reluctant to lose the exciting teenager, but they are bracing themselves for offers from Hebei CFFC and Shenzhen for Donkin.
