FK Haugesund defender Umaru Bangura is interesting Crystal Palace.

The Mirror says Sierra Leone international Bangura has been in Norway since 2006 after a move to Watford collapsed when he was refused a work-permit..

But because Sierra Leone are now higher in Fifa's rankings - Bangura, a regular for his country, is likely to qualify for an English work-permit..

And Palace have made their move as Bangura's current deal is due to expire at the end of this year.
