Palace won't consider selling superkids

Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan is adamant Victor Moses and John Bostock are going nowhere, despite interest from the Premier League.

Bostock, 15, is hoping to become the club's youngest-ever player while Moses, 16, is currently representing England at the Under-17 FIFA World Cup in Korea.

And despite having yet to make their competitive debuts for Palace, Jordan revealed he has already turned down six-figure sums for their services.

"You look at some of the younger players coming through like Victor and John and they are going to be proper players - we're talking about kids that I'm being offered £2million for at 15 years of age," Jordan told the South London Press.

"I'm certainly not investing millions of pounds into an academy to give my best kids over to other clubs just because they think they can get them."
