Stuttgart defender Matthias Zimmermann close to Crystal Palace move

Crystal Palace are closing on a deal for VfB Stuttgart defender Matthias Zimmermann.

BILD says the 25 year-old is on a flight to London this morning with a deal all but agreed between the two clubs.

Zimmermann, a former Germany U20 international, only made the breakthrough at Stuttgart last season, having been promoted from the club's reserve team.

The fullback also spent four years with Borussia Monchengladbach and managed an appearance with the first team.
