Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis is planning a summer move of Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The 27-year-old was on fine form this season claiming 11 clean sheets from 38 Premier League matches, but found himself missing from Roy Hodgson’s 23-man World Cup squad that was announced yesterday.

Ruddy’s one and only international cap came back in August 2012, when England played Italy, as he suffered a broken finger which kept him out of the 2012 European Championships.

The 2011-2012 Norwich player of the year, made the switch from Everton in 2011, but might be looking to leave the Canaries in order to force his way back into the England team, as Crystal Palace continue to worry about the future of Argentine Julian Speroni who could leave on a free transfer.

Pulis acquired the services of Wayne Hennessey from Wolves back in January, but the 56-year-old is believed to want another keeper for next season as Palace prepare for another season in the top flight.
