Crystal Palace launching bid for Burnley winger Dwight McNeil

Crystal Palace are launching a bid for Burnley winger Dwight McNeil.

The Sun says Palace have put McNeil at the top of their wishlist to replace Wilfried Zaha.

The Eagles are huge fans of the England Under-21 cap, whose pace and trickery down the left mark him out as the man to fill Zaha's magic boots if the Ivorian leaves.

Former Manchester United babe McNeil has emerged as a top player in the past year since making his Clarets debut.

There has been interest in the attacker, 20, from home and abroad — but Palace are now considered as serious players if they have to find the next Zaha.

Burnley would want a big price for McNeil, probably in excess of £20million.
