CRYSTAL PALACE bosses will hold an American summit to clarify Patrick Vieira’s signing plans.
Palace supremos John Textor, Josh Harris and David Blitzer are set to meet with London-based bosses to discuss the budget.
Vieira would like two or three players to strengthen a thin squad but doesn’t know how much he can afford.
Struggling to secure a deal for Lyon, Textor has money to throw at Palace while Harris, who was interested in Chelsea, has to declare his commitment to Palace.
It could be an important summit.
Chairman Steve Parish is caught in the middle, and he’s also keen to see money spent.
Palace brought in four new faces over the summer to spur on the progress of Crystal Palace’s rebuilding project.
Lens’ Cheick Doucoure and Bayern Munich’s Chris Richards watched the Eagles splash £30m
Meanwhile, in some clever deals further down the football league, they’ve recruited goalkeeper Sam Johnstone and winger Malcolm Ebiowei for free.
SunSport exclusively revealed the latter even turned down a move to Manchester United in favor of a summer move to Palace.

With five wins, five losses and four draws, the team from south London are currently comfortably in mid-table.
In his first season with the club, Vieira led the team to an impressive 12th place in the Premier League – the club’s best finish since 2018/19.
