Palace boss slaps £5m price tag on promising Sunderland target Clyne

17 July 2009 03:38
Neil Warnock has told Sunderland that promising Nathaniel Clyne is worth at least £5million. Sunderland are believed to have made an offer for the 18-year-old which could reach £3m with incentives, but Warnock wants to hold out for more. The Selhurst Park boss believes the right-back is at least as good as Kyle Naughton - the £5m-rated defender being pursued by Tottenham Hotspur and Everton. Palace are keen to raise funds and had already resigned themselves to losing either Clyne or striker Victor Moses - a target for Wigan, Portsmouth and Aston Villa. And Warnock said: 'There will be clubs sniffing round both Clyne and Victor (Moses). We have to put up with that. 'Kyle Naughton's on the move for £5m and I think the valuation is right. 'Kyle's a good player and is two years further down the line than Clyne is. But I think Clyne is as good if not better.'
