The Rumour Room – May 19th

Last updated : 19 May 2005 By Nik Taylor

Willem II are interested in signing Palace winger Joonas Kolkka, according to Sky Sports. The Dutch team can offer Kolkka European football after qualifying for next season’s UEFA Cup tournament. Palace should get a decent fee should the 30-year-old move on, since he has a further two years to run on his contract.

Various sources reckon a Spurs deal for Wayne Routledge has already been rubber-stamped following our relegation from the Premiership. A fee of around £2m is believed to have been agreed for the 20-year-old.
