​Crystal Palace failed with swoop for West Ham target Dendoncker

Crystal Palace are the club that reportedly came the closest to signing talented young midfielder Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht.

The midfielder, who impressed English audiences during the Europa League ties against Manchester United last season, was also on the radar of West Ham.

But it appears that Palace were very close to securing his signature during the January window. They made a good bid for the player, but it was not enough to persuade Anderlecht to sell midseason.

Whatever happens in the coming months, there is no doubt Dendoncker is a player who will attract interest from top clubs around Europe in the summer.
