Addicks in for Boycie

Charlton have emerged as favourites to sign Crystal Palace defender Emmerson Boyce. The 26-year-old only has 12 months remaining on his contract at the supermarket and has made no secret of his desire to play in The Premiership. He has been linked with moves to Wigan, Fulham and Charlton this summer, but the presence of Iain Dowie at The Valley looks likely to tip the scales in The Addicks' favour.

A fee of £1.75m is being suggested for the move north. 'Palace have offered me a new contract, but it wasn't really what I was looking for,' said Boyce. 'I want to play in The Premiership and I just hope people can understand that.' The Glaziers are resigned to his departure and are looking to cash in while he is still under contract.
