Eagles track non-league ace

Palace boss Peter Taylor is pondering a move for non-league star Dave Martin.

Dartford midfielder has trained with both the Eagles and MIllwall recently and the Ryman League side are now waiting to see whether either side will make a bid.

"At the moment he has trained with Millwall and Palace,"
Dartford manager Tony Burman told skysports.com.

"They have asked about a valuation, we have given them a valuation that we would like to receive for Dave and the ball is in their court for both clubs.

Burman dismissed reports that Palace had already made a £75,000 bid for the player, but stressed that he would be keen to see Martin move up to a higher league.

"The figure that was quoted in the paper is obviously not right," Burman added.

"I'm not saying whether it is too low or too high, but what I will say is that we are a Ryman League South side and we want to see our players going up in the league.

"We are not going to stand in his way but we do require a fee for him and both Crystal Palace and Millwall know what that is."
