Milligan's Crystal Palace move denied by Melbourne Victory

Mark Milligan has remained at Melbourne Victory following the close of the English Premier League's transfer window.

Crystal Palace were in discussions with the A-League club to take the 28-year old Australian international midfielder but the two clubs could not come to an agreement over how to pay the transfer fee.

The Eagles had made a couple of offers for Milligan which did not meet the Victory's valuation of their star before coming forward with a bid of $AUD1.4million which would have been enough to land him.

However, Palace wanted to pay the fee in instalments which the Victory reportedly rejected out of hand, preferring a lump sum.
