Crystal Palace failed to make two major signings as the deadline dropped last night.
Sky Sports says Palace failed to force through a late deals for Lille midfielder Ibrahim Amadou and Brondby goalkeeper Fred Ronnow.
Amadou travelled to London by train to complete a switch to Palace. When it became apparent a deal might not go through, Amadou reportedly pleaded with Lille to allow him his dream Premier League move.
But Lille could not source a replacement in time.
Palace's move for Ronnow also fell through as Brondby couldn't find someone to replace the goalkeeper.
