Neil Warnock has expressed his delight at Nathaniel Clyne's decision to turn down a switch to Wolves and stay at Crystal Palace.

Wolves agreed a fee with Palace's administrators for the highly-rated full-back before skysports.com revealed on deadline day that Clyne had rejected the chance to move to Molineux.

Warnock admits it was a relief to keep Clyne, who played against Wolves on Tuesday as Palace booked their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

"Clyne nearly went," Warnock said following his side's shock 3-1 victory.

"I was disappointed with the offer that was accepted but thankfully he didn't want to go.

"And the money we would have got for him, we have now got from the cup run. You can't blame Wolves for offering two and six."
