Eagles move back on?

Freddie Sears could still be playing his football in the capital next season, according to reports.

The Croydon Advertiser are claiming this morning that the 19-year-old striker could yet spend next season on loan at Crystal Palace - despite a move to Sheffield Wednesday being virtually rubber-stamped last week.

According to the report, Gianfranco Zola would prefer Sears to remain rather closer to home than Sheffield - giving the Eagles the green light to press ahead with their bid to sign the England youth striker.

However a move to Palace would appear unlikely given that the South London club's current manager, Neil Warnock, revealed he was set to sue the Hammers for lost earnings earlier this year.

Sears, who was told last month that he will spend next season on loan in a bid to gain experience had also been interesting newly-promoted Peterborough.

However KUMB.com understand that move was vetoed after the Championship new boys admitted that they could not afford to pay Sears' full wages for the duration of his loan spell - something which the Owls have already agreed to.
