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.
