Earlier on Tuesday we covered reports from Portuguese newspaper A Bola which detailed Norwich City’s continued willingness to sign Marvin Zeegelaar.

The Dutch left-back has turned down a move to the Championship club, and O Jogo said it was about money as well as dropping down to a second tier.

Norwich had agreed a fee with Sporting for Zeegelaar and the Portuguese club are still keen for the player to go. With it being late in the window, they’d now accept a loan, with the hope of a buying option, and that’s where Crystal Palace and Hull City come in.

Sporting are keen to get a deal done and should Crystal Palace or Hull City offer reasonable loan deals then Zeegelaar is likely theirs.
