Crystal Palace lead race for Osayi-Samuel’s signature


Crystal Palace are reportedly leading the race to sign Fenerbahce defender, Bright Osayi-Samuel.

According to TEAMtalk, the London club is ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United in the race to sign Osayi-Samuel.

The 25-year-old has consistently been linked with a move away from Fenerbahce since his arrival at the club from Sky Bet Championship outfit, Queens Park Rangers in January 2021.

The versatile defender was close to leaving Fenerbahce in the summer but the Turkish giants didn’t receive a suitable offer.

Palace are now poised to sign him when the transfer window reopens next month.

Osayi-Samuel played a significant role in Fenerbahce’s triumph in the Turkish Cup last season.

He is expected to be included in Nigeria’s squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
