Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock has revealed that several Premier League clubs were keen to sign highly-rated teenager Victor Moses last week.
The 18-year-old is one of the hottest properties in the Championship and has already featured in 54 matches for the Eagles.
"I spoke to three or four Premier League clubs about Victor last Tuesday," Warnock told the Croydon Advertiser.
"What I think will happen now is they'll look at him and make a decision on him by Christmas.
"As a manager, I'm delighted to still have him on board - but I feel sorry for the chairman a bit because he keeps on putting in the money."
