Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock is poised to move for Fulham’s out-of-favour forward Collins John, according to the Croydon Advertiser.

The Eagles manager is desperate to bolster his attacking options after watching his side fire blanks in their opening two league games against Watford and Preston respectively. Warnock has made the Dutch international, who has spent time on loan at Leicester City and Watford in recent seasons, his top target.

Warnock told the Advertiser: “We are interested in Collins John but we want to watch him in a reserve game first.”
