Despite reports suggesting that a move is close to being finalised, it seems as if there is no agreement in place between Crystal Palace and West Brom over the proposed transfer of Wayne Hennessey.
The Welsh number one has been the subject of transfer speculation over the last week or so, with his former boss Tony Pulis desperate to bring him in as a top level replacement for the injured Ben Foster, but as of yet, there has been no agreement struck between ourselves and the Baggies.
Hennessey had signed for Palace under the assumption of quickly overtaking Julian Speroni to become the Eagles’ undisputed number one, but now, after just a handful of starts in 18 months, it’s not hard to see why the former Wolves man is keen to move on in search of regular football.
As things stand, the stopper is all set to travel with his current teammates on their trip to Berlin ahead of this weekend’s friendly against Union, but he could easily make the switch soon after, with Pulis and his players set to return from their tour of the U.S. at roughly the same time.
With Euro 2016 selection an obvious point of concern for Hennessey, there will be a huge desire on his part to play week in week out in the Premier League next season, as he looks to cement his place in Chris Colmeman’s plans ahead of the summer, alongside fellow Palace man Joe Ledley.
A bid could come in at any stage, but at the time of writing, it seems as if Hennessey is yet to hear any categorical news on his future; should that change, you’ll be the first to know.
