Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman denies they're in talks with free agent Nigel Reo-Coker.

Freedman says midfield is not an area they are currently looking to strengthen.

"It's not true and there have been no discussions," he told the Croydon Advertiser. "I've not met him or spoken to him, so it's not true.

"I understand agents put things out, and because I've got respect for Nigel, I won't comment on it, but it's not true and it's a position we don't need to fill right now."
