Palace agree Benteke fee with Liverpool


Liverpool striker Christian Benteke is on the verge of moving to Crystal Palace after the clubs agreed a £27m fee for the player.

The Belgium international is in London to discuss personal terms with the Eagles and to undergo a medical.

The 25-year-old will be leaving Anfield just one year after moving from Aston Villa to the Merseysiders for £32.5m and enduring a forgettable spell at the club.

The move would more than double the Londoners record signing, with Andros Townsend's £13m switch from Newcastle last month the highest to-date.

The capture of Benteke will represent a significant coup for manager Alan Pardew and a real fillip for the Palace squad which is desperately lacking in terms of natural goalscorers.
