CRYSTAL PALACE have shocked French club Lille by asking for defender Ibrahim Amadou on loan.

The Eagles had a £13million offer for  Amadou, 24, rejected by Lille in the last window.

And now their latest request has also been rebuffed.

They may still try again, with a guarantee of a buy if Amadou signs and helps them to stay up.

The player is believed to be jumping at the option of a Premier League switch.

Amadou can also play as a defensive sitter, but the immediate vacancy is at the back for Palace and Roy Hodgson wants a new face to plug that hole.

The Eagles boss had previously said a centre-back was not a position he was recruiting for until recent injuries.

Hodgson said recently: "The subject of signing another centre-back has never come up because we weren't expecting Sakho and Dann to be out for long periods of time.

"But who knows now? There will be discussions. Football is an ever-revolving subject.

"What you think is good in your team at one time suddenly a moment in time changes it all."
