Crystal Palace's joint administrator Brendan Guilfoyle has confirmed the sale of teenage winger Victor Moses could help secure the future of the club. Palace went into administration on Tuesday after chairman Simon Jordan failed to attract new investment into the club, and they were hit with a 10-point penalty.
Guilfoyle said: "One of the options for the administrators is to sell players during the transfer window.
"Independent football agents appointed by the administrators to assist with player sales have reported that there is a great deal of interest from clubs wanting to buy Victor Moses."
Guilfoyle added: "I could not sleep last night worrying that Victor might be injured in the forthcoming match against Newcastle which could jeopardise the future of this long-established club.
"I therefore took the tough decision to instruct the manager that Victor Moses was not available for selection. The manager was very disappointed."
