SAINTS midfielder Jack Cork has been linked with a £3m move to Crystal Palace.
According to reports, the 25-year-old could be the seventh first-team player to be sold by the club this summer.
The club rejected a similar offer from Swansea City for Cork in January, while West Bromwich Albion and Queens Park Rangers were also said to have expressed interest.
It has been suggested that, because Cork has a year left on his contract and a new deal has not been agreed, Saints are keen to sell him rather than lose him for nothing.
Cork moved to St Mary’s from Chelsea in 2011 for a fee of about £750,000.
