According to French media outlet L’Equipe, the deal to take French goalkeeper Steve Mandanda to Premier League side Crystal Palace is only a matter of hours away from completion.
It was only yesterday where the final contract details were sorted out between Mandanda’s agent and Crystal Palace, whilst the South London side sent their medical staff to Clairefontaine, where the shot stopper is a resident during the Euro’s with the French side to complete the medical.
The duration of his potential contract still remains unknown, with the Eagles looking to offer Mandanda a two-year-deal, in a transfer that could potentially only cost them £2m.
It looks as though Crystal Palace have fended off interest from fellow Premier League clubs Everton and Chelsea buy acting a day earlier than that of when his current Marseille contract comes to an end.
Twitter: Mandanda’s contract officially runs out tomorrow, so it seems as though #cpfc have stolen a march in stumping up a fee a day early. #EFC (@Paddy_Boyland)
31-year-old Mandanda has been inbetween the posts for Ligue 1 side Marseille since 2008, making an impressive 300 appearances during his stay.
