Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock believes Victor Moses is heading to a Premiership club.
Championship sides Newcastle, West Brom and Nottingham Forest had tabled bids for the 19-year-old but they have been pipped by a top-flight side, with Wigan rumoured to have won the race for his signature.
The money will provide a lifeline for Palace after they plunged into administration this week.
“I think it’s done. Victor is going to the Premier League and I think £2.5million is a snip for one of the best young players we’ve got,” confirmed Warnock.
“Manchester City should have bought him ages ago instead of messing about, but another Premier League club have made an offer.
“I’ve spoken to a lot of managers over the last six months and one of the managers who should have taken him in the last window has come to his senses.
“I expect to see Victor do very well in the Premier League and I’m looking forward to watching him.”
Before i heard this comment i heard the deal was already more or less wrapped up,, personally im delighted if this one comes off although Bacelona, Real Madrid,Arsenal and Man Utd interested. Forgive me for being a little doubtful. I really hope we get this one
