Reports are out claiming that Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew says he’s in the dark over reports of club chief Steve Parish being in Marseille.
The co-owner was believed to have been in the south of France following a tweet he posted, fueling rumours of a move for Marseille hot shot Michy Batshuayi.
“We are trying to bring a striker in, whether it’s a permanent or loan deal,” said Pardew.
“Myself and Steve Parish are making many phonecalls to try and resolve that.
“That’s news to me (on Parish going to Marseille). I don’t think he would have been there to sign a player.”
The Belgium international is also linked with a move to Arsenal and Tottenham.
