Premier League side Crystal Palace are close to completing a move for Super Eagles fullback Bright Osayi-Samuel from Fenerbahce.

The London-based club are willing to cough out €11.3m for the high-flying Super Eagles fullback who has been impressive for the Turkish club this season.

The 24-year-old was close to a move to Selhurst Park three seasons ago while at Queens Park Rangers in the Championship, but the deal didn't fall through.

Osaye-Samuel has made 15 appearances for Fenerbahce in the Turkish Super Lig this season.

The Nigerian international has two years left of his contract with the club. He made his international debut for the Super Eagles on November 17 as Nigerian lost by 4-0 to Portugal in a pre-World Cup friendly.
