complete his move in the morning, in time to play for Palace in their home game against his former club Manchester City on Saturday.

Another of Symons's old teams was also in the running to sign the 30-year-old Basingstoke-born player. Portsmouth were believed to be interested and the defender himself even made it clear that he favoured a move back to Fratton Park, saying earlier this week: "Another First Division club are showing some interest but I would prefer to play for Pompey again if it came down to a choice."

However, that other club has proved successful and Symons will become Trevor Francis's first Palace signing, for 300k, since he took over the reins at Selhurst Park last week.

Fulham's Deputy Managing Director Lee Hoos said "The deal to take Kit to Crystal Palace is close to being sealed. We should be able to confirm that the move has gone through early on Friday."
