Crystal Palace are lining up a January bid for Hull City attacker Sone Aluko.

The Mirror says Aluko has paved the way for a £2.6million January switch to Crystal Palace by snubbing a new Hull contract.

Nigeria international Aluko is sidelined until February with a torn Achilles, but the Eagles have targeted him as the forward who can shoot them to Premier League survival.

And the Tigers know they must cash-in on the 24-year-old in the New Year or risk losing him for nothing when his deal runs out in the summer.
