Oumar Niasse looked to have finally secured a permanent move away in a deadline-beating deal with Crystal Palace but word is the transfer is off.

The striker was reportedly in London undergoing a medical with the Eagles ahead of what has been suggested could be £10m transfer from Goodison Park that would have gone a long way to seeing the Blues recoup their £13.5m outlay on him 18 months ago.

Had both parties agree personal terms, Niasse could have completed the move south tonight but The Guardian report that the deal has collapsed when agent fees failed to be agreed before the filing deadline.
