Dougie Freedman has confirmed that Palace are interested in Bristol Rovers midfielder Chris Lines.

Speaking to the Croydon Advertiser Freedman said he’d taken a watching brief on the 25 year old six months ago, with Lennie Lawrence paying close attention to any developments as he believed from his time working with Lines previously that he has the potential to make the step up.

With rovers down to League 2 it’s believed an offer in the region of £100,000 would secure the deal.

‘He is one we’ve been watching for some time. Lennie is leading the way, he knows the player and feels he has the ability and most importantly the right sort of character to do well for us.’

There are certainly plenty of links surfacing at the moment, a recent scouting trip to Scotland by Freedman has also seen us linked with winger Craig Conway and midfielder Craig Forsyth.
