The Croydon Advertiser takes a daily look at who the gossip columns say Palace are in the hunt for and any other rumours from Selhurst Park...July 10 A number of reports in the press claim the Eagles have taken a step closer to signing West Bromwich Albion's wantaway striker Peter Odemwingie. The Nigerian, who turns 32-years-old next week, is expected to be the subject of formal bid from Palace, say the Birmingham Mail. Along with the Daily Mirror, both claim Palace are also interested in a season-long loan deal, with a £40,000-a-week wage suggested by the Mirror if the clubs can't agree a fee. The Daily Mail say the striker was in talks on Tuesday night. Albion fly out to Austria next week for a pre-season tour so a deal could be concluded by the weekend. As reported on Tuesday by the Croydon Advertiser, a move for Newcastle United midfielder Dan Gosling has been played down by Eagles co-chairman Steve Parish. Widespread reports over the weekend suggested the 23-year-old was set for a move to Selhurst Park with an aim to play for Ian Holloway again. "No terms have been agreed because we haven't got an agreement with Newcastle United," Parish said. "There have been a few conversations with them – not on a fee, just details. "It's something we've made an enquiry about, that's all." Meanwhile, website Sports Mole say Palace have taken former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jake Nicholson to Selhurst Park for a trial. The 20-year-old was released by Spurs recently and has begun pre-season training with the Eagles. Nicholson made just one appearance for the first team at White Hart Lane in 2011, while he has represented England U19s and spent time on loan at Finnish club MyPa.Andre Moritz, released by Palace last week, could be set for a reunion with Dougie Freedman at Bolton Wanderers, say the Bolton News. The playmaker was signed by Freedman last summer at Selhurst Park, and the boss has admitted his interested in bringing the player to the Reebok Stadium. "It is something we are looking at," he said. "I've worked with him before and with it being a free transfer, if it was also an acceptable wage, then it might be something we can do."Alex Marrow completed a move back to Blackburn Rovers from Palace on Tuesday. And the defensive midfielder has told the club's website he is glad to be back in the north west. "I think when I left, it was probably the right thing to do at the time, because I didn't have the opportunities I was getting at Palace, but to come back is great," he said. "During the three years away, I think I've grown up a lot. "Palace was a big learning curve, obviously being away from home. It's one of those things that you look back on and you know you've done and it gives me a bit more experience, so I wouldn't change it, but I'm glad to be back up north to be honest. "Obviously at some point in my career it would be nice to play in the Premier League, but I think speaking to the gaffer and with everything here, it was quite an easy decision for me to come back to this club and play for him again and hopefully we can do the same as we did at Palace and push right on."
