Jack Cork is poised to make a move to Crystal Palace as he becomes the eighth player to leave Southampton this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Cork exit

The publication claims that Jack Cork is set to join Crystal Palace today for a fee of £3 million. The 25-year-old midfielder is just one of a number of players involved in a mass exodus from Southampton. Star names such as Adam Lallana, Ricky Lambert, Calum Chambers and Dejan Lovren have all left St Mary's, grossing more than £95 million for the club.

Cork has one year remaining on his contract at Southampton and talks over a new deal have failed to produce an agreement tempting the club to cash in on the midfielder.

Palace transfers

Crystal Palace have been strongly linked with Stoke midfielder Steven N'Zonzi as speculation surrounds the 'mystery midfielder' that Palace co-chaiman Steve Parish told fans they are 'close to signing'.

A move could see Cork partner Australia captain Mile Jedinak in the Palace midfield as the Eagles look to improve on a 11th place Premier League finish last season.

The Eagles face Arsenal this Saturday as they begin their bid to build upon the relative success they enjoyed last campaign. Palace will have to complete the transfer and accompyning paperwork of Cork by Friday evening to remain eligible for selection on Saturday.
