The Eagles were said to be leading the race to sign the former Newcastle star after Sunderland pulled the plug on a deal last week, but Sampdoria could now throw a spanner in the works.

Alan Pardew hopes the fact he knows Santon well from their time together at Newcastle will win the day, but the defender could be tempted to stay in Italy rather than return to England.

A move away from Inter Milan looks certain to happen but it remains to be seen whether Palace can conclude a deal, with Watford and Middlesbrough also thought to be interested.
