Agent of CSKA Moscow striker Fedor Chalov confirms Crystal Palace talks

The agent of CSKA Moscow striker Fedor Chalov has confirmed Crystal Palace are keen.

Sandor Varga admits he's held talks with Palace manager Roy Hodgson about a deal this week for Chalov. However, Palace's £14m offer fell short of CSKA's valuation.

He told Sport-Express: "Yes, he called me and was interested in Fedor, asking for my opinion. So the interest was substantive.

"But I met with the leadership of CSKA. I understand their decision.

"It's probably too early for Fedor to join the English club. He is still young.

"He will still progress. I am sure that in the future Fedor will cost much more than £14-15m."
