Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed that his side have finalized a transfer fee to sign Arsenal's Carl Jenkinson this month.

The 24-year-old has been strongly linked with a £3m switch to Selhurst Park with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admitting that the deal should go through.

Allardyce has now revealed that the Eagles are closing in on the England international, and it is left for the right-back to finalize personal terms over the move.

The Eagles have already recruited Jeffrey Schlupp from Leicester City for a £12m fee, but Allardyce insists that he may have to move in the foreign market for further additions.

Juventus left-back Patrice Evra is another who has been heavily tipped to join Crystal Palace in the current transfer window.
