Rivals join winger race

Rivals join winger race

Crystal Palace face a battle to land Greenock Morton winger Jai Quitongo as Southampton are the latest club to express an interest.

The 19-year-old is catching the eye with some dazzling performances north of the border and the scouts are flocking to watch him in action.

Palace, Hull and Swansea scouts have made several checks on the youngster, and now reports claim Southampton are also keeping tabs on his performances.

Quitongo is out of contract at the end of the season and although Morton are keen to tie him down to a new one, that looks highly unlikely with so much interest.

Clubs outside of Scotland will be able to talk to him in January and it would appear Palace, Hull, Southampton and Swansea are forming an orderly queue, while there is also interest from Wigan, Preston and Brighton.
