Crystal Palace have emerged as favourites to sign Wigan midfielder James McArthur after a proposed move to Leicester City has collapsed.
According to the Daily Mail, Leicester City had a £7 million bid for the 26-year-old accepted this week but the deal fell down over the proposed payment structure.
McArthur is keen to return to the Premier League with Leicester, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Burnley all having shown interest in the youngster's services.
Burnley had four bids turned down in their pursuit of McArthur, which all failed to meet Wigan's evaluation of the midfielder.
Leicester bid brakes down
A £7m bid from Leicester City was accepted and the departure of the 26-year-old looked imminent but the move eventually broke down after the two clubs failed to agree with the pay structure of the deal.
Leicester City instead looked towards the experienced Esteban Cambiasso who signed for the Foxes on a one-year-deal.
The Eagles have also been linked with Southampton defender Jack Cork and Norwich striker Gary Hooper.
Warnock told reporters: "I have had 320 messages from agents and they are all brilliant players."
The Palace boss is set to have a hectic end to the transfer window which closes on Monday as he looks to bring in new recruits to strengthen the Crystal Palace squad ahead of this season's relegation battle.
