Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway confirms that the club have held talks with former France international William Gallas.

Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has confirmed that the club have held talks with William Gallas over a possible move to Selhurst Park.

The 36-year-old defender has been without a club since leaving Tottenham Hotspur at the end of last season.

Holloway has admitted that there have only been initial talks made with the former France international.

"We are a long way off a deal with him, but I met him. Whether we can ever come to a deal I do not know," Holloway told Sky Sports News.

"He was a very nice man and he admitted he is only 50 per cent fit, which might be a problem."

Queens Park Rangers and Australian side Melbourne Victory are also reportedly interested in signing Gallas.
