​Crystal Palace knocked back again by Lille in Amadou pursuit

Lille have blocked Crystal Palace from signing Ibrahim Amadou on loan.

The Ligue 1 club are in dire straits financially, but according to Sky Sports, they've rejected Palace's offer of a loan with an option to buy.

The Eagles had an offer of £16m rejected by Lille earlier in the month.

Palace chairman Steve Parish made the trip to France on the weekend to watch Amadou in person. The 24-year-old put in a man-of-the-match performance in Lille's 2-1 win over Strasbourg.
