Crystal Palace to sign Real Betis midfielder Victor Camarasa

Real Betis midfielder Victor Camarasa has travelled to London to complete a season-long loan move to Crystal Palace, according to report.

Mucho Deporte say that the Eagles will pay €1.5m for the temporary arrangement and if the player participates in 20 games or more next season, they will be obliged to pay an additional €13.5m to make the move permanent.

The former Levante midfielder joined Betis in a €7m deal in 2017 but made only 14 starts in his sole La Liga campaign in Seville.

Camarasa had impressed in the Welsh capital on a season-long loan deal with Cardiff City with five goals in 32 league games, including strikes against Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal.

However, the Bluebirds suffered relegation and were not able to retain his services, while Tottenham had also been linked with a move for the Spaniard earlier this summer.

He has played for Los Verdiblancos in pre-season but Betis are said to be expecting his departure and see his exit as valuable in recuperating funds to reinvest elsewhere in their squad.

The Premier League transfer window closes on 8 August.
