Crystal Palace have dismissed claims that Newcastle have made an approach for highly-rated defender Nathaniel Clyne.

The England Under-21 international has quickly become a regular at Selhurst Park since making his debut as a 17-year-old in 2008.

The London-born defender has made 139 appearances for the Eagles so far, picking up the club's Player of the Year award in the 2010/11 season.

His performances have caught the eye of a number of Premier League sides, with Newcastle, Reading and Manchester United all previously linked with his signature.

Recent reports in the North East suggested that Newcastle had made the first move to sign Clyne after making contact with the Championship club over a potential deal.

Not true

Palace co-chairman Steve Parish admits that there has been interest shown in Clyne, but has played down talk of an imminent transfer.

"I read them and they are not true," Parish told the South London Press.

"It's completely made up - I hate using those words but they just got bad information.

"I had a chat to people a while ago and they do quite like him - but that doesn't mean they are going to buy him."
