According to the Sunday People today new Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock is set to leap frog QPR & Hull City to sign Mo Diame on transfer deadline day tomorrow. The Eagles would have to meet the £3.5m buy out clause price tag plus be prepared to pay him £50,000 per week or more. Earlier this week Sam Allardyce was asked about the possibility of Carlton Cole and Mo Diame leaving the club he said ““I expect both of them to be here next week and beyond”
However, with Hull, QPR, Palace and possibly Everton after his signature the chances of keeping after 11pm tomorrow seem slim.
Speaking about the transfer deadline day Sam added:
“I think all the managers have the TV on for the countdown to the end of the window, but what I am hoping is that I am just sat there watching because all my business is done, I don’t want to be the one of the phone at the last minute trying to make a signing, or the one losing a player I don’t want to lose, because at that stage there is no time to find a replacement.”
