CRYSTAL PALACE are rumoured to be keeping tabs on unsettled Swindon Town duo Sam Parkin and Danny Invincible.
Former Chelsea starlet Parkin (pictured) has bagged 24 goals in what has been a largely disappointing term for the Robins, who currently lie twelfth in the Second Division.
The Eagles' First division rivals, Preston North End are also monitoring the burly hit-man's situation, but Swindon are keen to tie the 22-year-old down to a long-term deal.
Parkin has one year left on his contract at the County Ground, but has hinted he would be willing to discuss an extension should the club match his ambitions.
"I'd be happy to talk about it. The manager has said the club need to prove to me that it's going places. I'm ambitious and I want to know that next year we'll have a decent squad," said the former Wycombe ace.
Meanwhile, Australian Invincible has openly stated his desire to leave Town at the end of the season when he will be out of contract.
Palace are likely to stiff face competition for the 24-year-old's signature however, as the former Marconi midfield man has been one of Swindon's most consistent performers since joining The Robins back in 2000.
