EAGLES boss Neil Warnock has today confirmed Alan Lee is close to a move to Crystal Palace, with Ben Watson linked with a switch in the other direction.

Warnock said: “Alan is having a medical with us and we are hoping to agree personal terms.”

We revealed yesterday how Palace were given permission to talk to Lee after Ipswich had accepted a £600,000 bid, confirmed this morning by Town chief executive Derek Bowden.

Palace's left-footed midfielder Ben Watson has also been linked with a move to Ipswich with Town paying £1.5m on top of the Lee price.
