Looks like Mark Hughes is getting a move on with his summer signings as Brazilian central defender Dionatan Teixeira (nickname ‘John’!) is set to sign for a fee of around £600k after a successful trial. He’s only 21 and has been in the Manchester City youth team a few years ago. Meanwhile, in the Academy young Australian striker Peter Skapetis has signed from QPR.
Meanwhile heading for the exit looks to be Cameron Jerome, who despite a year left on his contract is not likely to join Pulis at Crystal Palace permanently. Michael Kightly is in advanced stages of confirming a permanent transfer to Burnley where he has proved a hit on loan this season. Matthew Etherington is definitely leaving in the summer, with others yet to have their future at the club decided including Thomas Sorenson and Brek Shea.
