Reports: Fraizer Campbell To Have Medical At Palace Today

Sky Sports News are reporting that Cardiff City striker Fraizer Campbell is set to have a medical with Crystal Palace today, ahead of a proposed move.

The former Manchester United player has been a target for Tony Pulis all summer, with a fee having supposedly been agreed with his current club for over a week, but with interest in him from the likes of Leicester City recently, negotiations had seemingly stalled.

However, the Foxes recent capture of Leandro Ulloa from Brighton may well have put them off the idea of signing Campbell too, putting Palace back in the race for his signature, despite the previous issues.

Of course, it’s best not to get too excited just yet, with this summer having taught us that nothing is certain until it’s been made official, but a medical for Campbell is definitely a step in the right direction, let’s just hope he passes it…

WATCH: Columbus Crew V Crystal Palace To Be Shown FREE Here

Crystal Palace’s latest friendly against MLS side Columbus Crew will be streamed live on the host’s website tonight/tomorrow morning from 12:30 am GMT.

With Tony Pulis’s side having only played one game so far in pre-season, which resulted in an impressive 13-1 victory, this evening’s game promises to be a far more competitive affair, with Greg Berhalter’s side having been participating in the MLS since 1994.

After a tough training regime in the last two weeks, we should see a side with a greater sense of shape and endeavour to the one that played in Austria, although there is still the possiblity of Pulis changing the entire side at half-time in similar style.

With no new signings as of yet, we should see a relatively familiar starting XI to what we were used to last season, albeit with a sprinkling of youth, given the inclusion in the travelling party of Jake Gray, Hiram Boateng and Jerome Williams.

Although another 13 goal victory would be fantastic, it’s nowhere near as likely.

Tune into the stream on the link below from midnight to watch the team play, enjoy.
