Another one out the door? Hopefully not...

Connor Wickham has reportedly emerged as a very late deadline day target for Crystal Palace, according to the Mirror.

The England under-21 striker has found opportunities limited at Sunderland and is coming off a very successful loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday.

The situation would appear to resemble the Lee Cattermole deal though. If Sunderland are going to sell a player to a relegation rival, it must surely come at a vastly inflated price. You can't be doing favours to people who are trying to stomp over you to safety.

I'd personally like to see Wickham persevered with here too. Gus Poyet will have had very little opportunity to really watch him and work with him yet. No need to rush into a snap judgement, especially given the player's age.

Hopefully, this one is a non-starter.
