If Palace were able to bring in Connor Wickham I think this would be a good move as the Sunderland man is a quality footballer.

Would such a move, if this is even being plotted at the Mirror claims, be something that should be done before the appointment of a new boss though?

The new boss might not fancy Wickham so are Steve Parish and Ian Moody really working on a ‘surprise deal’ to land the England U21 international from Sunderland in a £6m plus player deal? I am not so sure….

Glenn Murray is the rumoured player in question being offered as bait, which could tempt Gus Poyet given his past with him.

Murray is cult hero at Palace, a player we would love to have around but with competition from Marouane Chamakh, Fraizer Campbell and Dwight Gayle already it’s looking harder to see the bigman getting too much of a starting place in the future isn’t it?

Until a new boss is appointed, which shouldn’t be too far in coming, you wouldn’t expect any deal to go through would you? Perhaps they can be mooted and the new man has their say as they could be in place by the close of play today even….
