Peterborough United have accepted a bid from Crystal Palace for their star midfielder George Boyd.
Palace fan Boyd has been at Posh for seven years in which time he has been instrumental in three promotions. He is out of contract at the end of this season and so would be moving on at some point but the bid from Palace is obviously an attractive one for Posh.
The 27-year-old will now travel the Selhurst Park to discuss personal terms.
Posh Chairman Darragh MacAnthony confirmed the accepted bid as he said: "We have agreed terms with Crystal Palace for the transfer of George Boyd tonight [Tuesday, 29th January]. The player will now talk terms with Palace.
"It`s obviously sad news for us at Posh, but we couldn`t turn this opportunity down for the player. Many clubs have made bids which in truth were verging on taking the mick, however Palace have backed their manager and met our terms today.
"George has been a Palace fan all his life and now he has the chance, if he joins them, to help them get promoted to the Premier League."
We will bring you details of any agreement as soon as it happens.
