Nathaniel Clyne: Could depart Crystal Palace this summer
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has revealed the club are ready to offload wantaway defender Nathaniel Clyne this summer.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park, having previously attracted reported interest from Manchester United, Newcastle, Reading and West Ham.
Clyne, who came through the Eagles' youth academy, is out of contract at the Championship club but Palace would receive a compensation fee due to his age.
Parish is prepared to let the youngster leave this summer but says a sum for his services remains a sticking point.
The chairman said: "We need to do a deal with Clyne.
"There is a bit of action in the background and we know there is a lot of interest.
"It is just about sorting out who it is best to go to and who will put the right money on the table. We're all working to get an outcome.
"Clubs don't want to go down the tribunal route. It is a game of cat and mouse on the fee - we've just got to let that play out."
