George Burley has confirmed Crystal Palace are close to landing Everton striker James Vaughan on loan.
Vaughan has been linked with a move away from Everton after falling down the pecking order at Goodison Park.
Sheffield United and Derby have both been linked with Vaughan, but it appears Palace have won the race for the 22-year-old.
Eagles boss Burley has confirmed he is close to striking a deal for the England Under 21 international and that he will be his last signing until the new year.
"We think James is a very good player and we are hoping to finalise the move today or tomorrow," Burley told the Croydon Advertiser.
"It's no secret we have been looking for a striker and I think James could be the answer.
"He will be the final player we bring in, after this deal we will work with what we've got."
