Fleetwood Town have swooped for Crystal Palace striker Stephen Dobbie.

The Croydon Advertiser says Dobbie is set to complete a season-long loan at League One new boys Fleetwood Town.

The Scotsman will not be travelling with the first team to the pre-season friendly against Augsburg or take part in the Development Squad's match at Fulham.

It is understood that Dobbie would like to be closer to his family up north, while he has one more year left on his contract at Palace.
