Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway is unsure whether a deal or not will go through for released former-Spurs defender William Gallas. 

Holloway has spoken to free agent Gallas, released by Spurs in the summer, and is very interested in the experienced Frenchman but doesn't know if a deal can be done to secure his services. 

As reported on talkSPORT, Holloway said: "We met him on Wednesday. I don't know yet if we can do a deal.

"He was a very nice man and he admitted he's only 50 per cent fit which might be a problem. We're a long way off a deal with him but I met him. Whether we can ever come to a deal I do not know."

It is believed that Gallas's wages could prove to be a stumbling block to the proposed deal with the fact that he is only 50 per cent fit adding to complications.

Seeing as Gallas is currently a free agent, Holloway has time on his hands to mull over offering the former Arsenal and Chelsea defender a contract. 

Desperate to add to his vastly inexperienced side, Holloway has also revealed that he has talked to Reading's Jimmy Kebe. 

"He's one of the ones we're trying to pursue. I was allowed to speak to Jimmy at about half 11 on Wednesday night. I don't know where we are with that," Holloway added.

Crystal Palace have brought in a couple of players sine their promotion to the top flight - chiefly Dwight Gayle from Peterborough and Josè Campaña from Sevilla. But they have lost their opening two Premier League games to Tottenham and Stoke City.
