Eagles line up Hastie contract offer
Motherwell winger Jack Hastie has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for Crystal Palace.
It was claimed Rangers were on the verge of landing Hastie on a pre-contract agreement but recent reports are suggesting Palace are looking to rival the Gers for the winger's signature.
The Eagles, who are closing in on Premier League survival this season, are keen to add some attacking talent to their squad in the summer and Motherwell's rising star is top of the list.
Since returning from a loan spell at Alloa Athletic in January, the 19-year-old has been in terrific form, having scored five goals in nine Premiership games and his impressive performances have not gone unnoticed.
Palace are now hopeful they can persuade Hastie to make the switch to Selhurst Park when his contract expires this summer after recently sending scouts to watch him in action during a 3-0 win over Hamilton.
