England international Martin Kelly – who was part of the Euro 2012 squad – could complete his move to Palace as soon as Wednesday after Liverpool signed Javier Manquillo from Atletico Madrid, pushing him down the right-back pecking order.

Last season Kelly failed to start a single league game for the Reds, in which the Merseyside club finished a close second in the race for the Premier League title.

The 24-year-old is keen to play regularly and Tony Pulis sees him as a great acquisition to strengthen the Eagles’ defensive unit.

Meanwhile Ivorian centre-back Toure is set to join Trabzonspor after a £1.5million bid was also accepted.

The club’s president confirmed the transfer stating: “We have agreed terms with Kolo Toure and we will bring him to the club.”
