A report claims that Ibrahim Amadou is furious with Lille chiefs after his proposed move to Crystal Palace, potentially worth up to £16m, fell through on deadline day.

Lille midfielder Ibrahim Amadou has reportedly been left mortified after being denied the chance to complete a switch to Crystal Palace.

The 24-year-old was involved in arguably the biggest saga of deadline day, having travelled to London via train and arrived at his destination ahead of the 11pm cut-off point.

Amadou was waiting in Palace's London office for the green light to finalise his switch, with a medical already understood to have been completed, but permission never arrived despite pleading to the French club's chiefs.

According to Sky Sports News, a move ultimately failed to materialise due to Lille's failure to recall Xeka back from his loan spell at Dijon as cover.

Palace are understood to have offered Les Dogues, under a transfer embargo and unable to sign new recruits, a £2m loan fee and a further £14m to sign Amadou permanently at the end of the season.
