Mathieu Flamini

London, Sep 7 (IANS) Crystal Palace chief coach Alan Pardew acknowledged on Wednesday that there are negotiations with French midfielder Mathieu Flamini to join the London football club.

Flamini, 32, is a free agent since his contract with Arsenal expired last June 30, so he does not have to wait until the winter transfer window opens to drop anchor at Crystal Palace, reports Efe.

“Yes, there is scope to bring in one more into the squad — I did that on purpose as I thought there might be a player we can take who is not under contract, who might just fit what we’re doing,” Pardew told the press on Wednesday.

“Mathieu is a player I am looking at, yes. He would give us a bit more experience to winning games. I like the fact whenever he played, he played in the big, big games at Arsenal when they needed someone to kind of lead the team over the line and get big results,” the coach added.

“Mathieu’s name was always on that list. I have always admired what he’s done, so I am looking at him.”
