CRYSTAL Palace are understood to be closing in on an £8m move for Cardiff City and England centre-back Steven Caulker, according to national media reports. The former Spurs man was one of Cardiff's standout performers last season despite relegation, but the Eagles have targeted Caulker as someone to partner Scott Dann. The two clubs were involved in a 'Spygate' scandal back in April, with the Welsh club alleging that Palace sporting director Iain Moody had got hold of Cardiff's starting XI before their game against each other. Pulis, who has links and contacts with Cardiff, though, is hoping to put recent history behind them and offer big cash to bring Caulker back to London.
