For some time now, Dundee United midfielder Scott Banks has been linked with Crystal Palace, and the latest development in this drawn out saga could take him to London.

According to a report (Daily Record), the young midfielder is set to knockback a Tannadice contract extension in favour of letting his deal in Tayside expire.

It’ll open the door for an Eagles move. Way back in August, United reportedly booted out a bid of approximately six figures for the talented youngster (Evening Telegraph).

Now it seems like they’ll only get a compensation fee for the midfielder as a move down south edges closer.

Crystal Palace likely suitors for Banks

With such strong interest from Crystal Palace over the summer, you’d like to think they would be one of the leading candidates for his signature. Southampton were another team linked with him though during the last transfer window (Scottish Sun).

A recent report though claimed that the Eagles were still after the Tangerine man following their summer interest (The Sun).

According to the most recent report regarding Banks, United stand to make around £200k in compensation when he makes his likely move south of the border.

Banks has featured four times this season after a loan spell with Clyde last term. He hasn’t featured in a matchday squad since September and hasn’t played a Championship game since August.
