Crystal Palace closing on deal for Ipswich goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski

Crystal Palace are closing on a deal for Ipswich goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski.

The Sun says the south London club are desperate to sign a new No1 and are prepared to pay £3.5million but Ipswich want over £4m.

Bialkowski, 30, who joined from Notts Country in 2014, has been a consistent performer for Mick McCarthy at Portman Road.

Ipswich are resigned to losing him but would rather keep Bialkowski until the end of the season.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson, despite overseeing an improvement in results, is keen to bring in a new keeper as he is unsure over both Wayne Hennessey and Julian Speroni.

Bialkowski spent six years at Southampton before joining County in 2012.
