Deal Close: Chelsea set to agree £12m defender deal

Chelsea midfielder Victor Moses is reported closing in on joining Crystal Palace in a deal believed to be worth around £12m.

The Nigerian international, who initially started his career with the Eagles, has been down the pecking order this season and has been only able to registered five appearances in all competitions.

Reports from the Evening Standard claimed Moses’ reduced gametime has resulted in the defender seeking greener pasture elsewhere and Palace seem the front-runners to re-sign him, having left the club eight years ago.

Aside from Palace, Wolverhampton Wanderers and ex-loan club West Ham United have also expressed an interest but Moses is said to favour a return to the Eagles where he started his professional career.

Palace have been fighting a relegation battle since the start of the season but they have recently got themselves some leeway after a shock 3-2 defeat on the road to Manchester City.

Roy Hodgson’s side are currently four points adrift of 18th-placed Cardiff City, whom they are scheduled to face in the next league meeting on Boxing Day.
