Released Tottenham midfielder Jack Nicholson is chasing a deal with Crystal Palace.

The 20-year-old has been training with the Eagles in a bid to win a contract after being released from Spurs, and he impressed for the Palace U21 side in their recent 6-0 victory at East Grinstead Town, says the Croydon Advertiser.

Nicholson, who operates in the middle of the park, played one game for Tottenham in the Europa League in 2011 after a string of impressive performances for the Spurs Academy.

And after suffering back-to-back injuries, he was unable to recapture that form and was released from his contract at the start of this month.
