On Wednesday, ESPN journalist Julian Capera stated Crystal Palace have agreed personal terms with KRC Genk’s Daniel Muñoz.

Later that day, we covered claims from Belgium that the defender has refused to train as he’s trying to force a move to the Premier League side in the winter market.

The 27-year-old is keen on making a switch to Crystal Palace and today’s Het Belang van Limburg provides the latest on this case.

Muñoz is respect at the Jupiler Pro League side and only his refusal to train hasn’t pleased them, not his general transfer desire, especially in the build-up for the derby clash against STVV.

It’s claimed the right-back’s ‘head has long been interested’ in joining Roy Hodgson’s side. He’s now putting pressure on the Belgian club to seal an exit, but Genk don’t want to be bullied.

The deal isn’t close to being completed because the difference between the two clubs is ‘still large’. The Jupiler Pro League side want €10m for the Colombia international, while the Eagles hesitantly moved towards a figure around €6m.

HBVL state Crystal Palace have time to ‘come up with more cash’.

The South American has managed seven goals and two assists from 29 games this season.

Meanwhile, Het Laatste Nieuws state the negotiations are ongoing between Crystal Palace and Genk.

They add Genk are willing to please the player, but to do this, the gap between the offer and demand ‘still too large’.
