However, little progress has been made, and Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers won’t allow the situation to drag on into the new season.

Palace, who miraculously survived in the English Premier League having looked doomed to relegation at one stage, are hoping to make a better start to their campaign this time around and are intent on strengthening their squad accordingly.

Armstrong has also been linked Southampton, Burnley and new boys Cardiff City.
