It was being reported earlier today that there could be a potential swap deal being lined up between Crystal Palace and Leicester City when it came to Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray.

Sky Sports were reporting that talks were ongoing between the clubs over the potential deal, but Leicester are less than keen as they don’t want to sell Gray and are in fact attempting to negotiate a new deal with the England Under 21 international.

Leicester were however interested in Townsend earlier in the window according to speculation, but an asking price of over £25million forced us to move interest elsewhere.

Townsend’s representatives have apparently told Sky that no swap deal will take place, but the player could move on for a straight cash offer though.

There appears to be a ‘fill column inches’ vibe to this one all considered.
