A surprise bidder to take Crystal Palace out of administration has emerged in the form of hip-hop mogul and multi-millionaire Sean 'Diddy' Coombs. Palace administrator Brendan Guilfoyle is so excited by the news that he has declared that he is prepared to fly to New York to seal the deal.
The rapper had considered buying Portsmouth, but thought Palace was a better deal. Moreover, he liked the name. He has not yet said whether he will write an Eagles rap.
