Crystal Palace are closing in on a deal to sign Fenerbahce winger Volkan Sen according to

The Eagles remain without a manager and as such are yet to begin their transfer business but it looks like they are going to press on with their first addition of the summer with the Turkey international high on their radar.

Fenerbahce have been under significant pressure from Financial Fair Play rulings, which meant having their European squad limited to just 22 players as a punishment for breaching regulations so they are in a position where they need to offload players.

That makes it likely that Sen could be the first of many to depart the Turkish giants with Palace already understood to have agreed personal terms with the 29-year-old on a deal that is expected to be worth £3 million.

The star, who has 22 caps for his country, will add competition to the likes of Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend at Selhurst Park.

There may be some concerns among the Crystal Palace fans about their potential new signing though.

A record of just five goals in 51 league games does not look overly impressive while the winger has also served a five-month ban for shoving a referee in a Europa League match last year.

The Selhurst faithful will hope all such controversies are a thing of the past should the Eagles go on to complete the deal.
