REPORT: Crystal Palace Set To Sign Nathan Ferguson From West Brom

Baggies’ Defender Set To Move as Eagles Swoop

The talented defender was close to switching to Selhurst Park in January but a deal fell through after a medical.

Any chance of a switch collapsed earlier this year as the medical uncovered that the defender had a knee problem.

But, according to the Standard (via Football.London) the defender is set to complete a move to the top-flight this summer.

The 19-year-old has been a fairly constant fixture within the Baggies’ line-up this season; making 21 appearances in the Championship this term.

However, with his contract expiring later this year, the move is likely to be of a minimal fee to Palace.

Transfer Upheaval For Palace?

This summer could be one of with many transfers as Ferguson closes in on a move and Christian Benteke receives fierce criticism.

The Belgian has scored just five goals since the start of the 2017-18 season.

A 10-month goal drought was ended against Everton in February but former Palace striker Ian Wright has highlighted two reasons as to why he has been struggling.

Speaking on the BBC podcast Match of the Day Top 10: Premier League goalscorers, via Football.London, Wright said: “A case in point is Christian Benteke.

“You look at someone who was scoring goals at the rate he was and went for the moves he did, and then it stopped.

“And it has stopped to a point where I watch him now and I actually don’t think he is going to score when he gets a chance.

“And that, for me, is a state of mine. I always felt if I was scoring in training, I was always confident going into a game, no matter how many games it had been since I scored.”
