Sakho has had a fine career at Palace, having previously shone for the likes of Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain as well, and he could be a useful addition for Betis.

Estadio Deportivo claim it’s most likely that the Andalusian outfit will swoop for Sakho on a free transfer when his contract at Selhurst Park expires at the end of the season.

The 30-year-old could in theory negotiate a move for next summer from January onwards, so it will be interesting to see how this deal develops in the weeks ahead.

Sakho has played 74 games for Palace in all competitions since joining the club five years ago.
