Dikgacoi set to pen Palace deal

A fee, reported to be £600,000, was agreed over the weekend

and the South Africa international, who joined the Championship

club on loan last season, is settled on a three-year deal. Palace

are now expected to officially announce the move on Monday

afternoon and Freedman believes that Dikgacoi represents a good

investment. The Palace boss told the Advertiser: “KG will sign on a

permanent deal. He’s my kind of player and I’ve persuaded the

chairman to buy him. “At only 26 he is only going to get better

with more games and I see it as a good investment for the football

club. “He wants to come here and play and I am only interested in

players who are keen to play for Crystal Palace and will make us a

better side.” Dikgacoi joined Fulham in August 2009, but made just

seven league starts for the Premier League side before moving to

Palace in February.
