Burnley will be hoping to put their Spurs hammering behind them when they face Newcastle United on Saturday. For now, enjoy today's Premier League rumours.

Burnley star Dwight McNeil has reportedly been chosen by Crystal Palace as the 'top target' to replace Wilfried Zaha.

Zaha has been extensively linked with a move away from Selhurst Park, with Chelsea one club frequently mentioned.

Now, The Sun report that Palace have been impressed with McNeil's development at Turf Moor, and would consider a move for him if they were to let Zaha go.

Palace would demand a huge fee for Zaha, so would likely have the money to make a handsome offer for the Burnley star.

Sean Dyche and co will no doubt be adamant that the youngster remains at the club during the January window, though.
