Hatfield labelled the length of time taken for a tribunal to take place as a bit of a joke, telling This is Futbol: “The tribunal situation is a bit of a joke – it’s been going for yonks now, it’s been going for years and they’ve still not sat down and had a chat about it. It’s still not sorted. 

“In terms of a fee, it’s a really tricky situation because Albion and probably rightly so, when the deal was agreed, if you’re talking twelve million pounds, I think they saw that as a fair fee around that figure.

“And ultimately that’s when he’s joined Crystal Palace, the summer before his serious problems, but you know, he had the knee issue beforehand. They’ll want around that figure.”

Ferguson was signed when Roy Hodgson was the manager of Crystal Palace, but now under Patrick Vieira’s leadership, the 20-year-old fits the profile that the new manager wants.

In the summer Vieira brought younger players to the football with Michael Olise, Marc Guehi, Odsonne Edouard and Conor Gallagher just a few names who arrived at Selhurst Park.
