Crystal Palace have agreed a new club-record £7million fee with Wigan for midfielder James McArthur, Press Association Sport understands.

Leicester City had agreed a £7million deal for Scotland midfielder McArthur but pulled out of the deal after snaring Esteban Cambiasso instead.

Palace will break the £4.5million paid to Peterborough for striker Dwight Gayle last summer if they now complete the deal for 26-year-old McArthur as expected.

Spanish sports daily Marca are reporting that Liverpool are keen on signing unattached goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

The former Barcelona No.1 is currently injured, so wouldn't complete a move to the Premier League until October.

Ayew to take flight?

Swansea are being linked with Ghana winger Andre Ayew, but that he's also said to be interesting Villa, Hull and QPR (of course).

There is work being done at Cardiff too, with the club set to complete the signing of centre-half Bruno Ecuele Manga from Lorient for a fee in the region of £5m. That may see Mark Hudson leave the club, possibly to either Fulham or Leeds.
