Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Burnley winger Dwight McNeil, in an attempt to bolster their options in attack. 

McNeil has been tipped for a swift return to Premier League football this summer with both Palace and West Ham United targeting his signature following Burnley’s relegation to the Championship. Burnley value the attacker player at over £10million and will turn down any bids that don’t meet their valuation, according to reports in The Sun.

The 22-year-old has registered seven goals for Burnley since joining their academy from Manchester United in 2014 going on to make 134 Premier League appearances for the Lancashire club during that time.

The former OGC Nice coach has already been active this summer signing goalkeeper Sam Johnstone and Malcolm Ebiowei, with Cheick Doucoure also completing an impressive move from French outfit RC Lens.

McNeill has two years left on his current contract at Turf Moor and will be allowed to leave should a sufficient bid come in for him.
