Florian Marange has left Livorno to fly to London for talks with Crystal Palace.

The released Bordeaux left-back had impressed Livorno coaching staff in trials, but Sky Italia says he left Italy yesterday on a flight to London.

Marange expects to be immediately offered terms by Palace boss Ian Holloway.

Indeed, negotiations are so advanced that Marange could be ready to make his Palace debut against Tottenham.
