Matt Sillett rounds up the best of the week's Crystal Palace news.

McArthur move north of the border?

James McArthur has been strongly linked with a move to Scottish Premiership side Rangers.

According to the Daily Mail, McArthur is high on Rangers' summer transfer shopping list as he is out of contract at the end of the season.

Zaha on diving accusations

Wilfried Zaha says his reputation for diving is unjust and there is an agenda against him from opposing teams.

Many believe the Palace star was wrongly booked for diving against Watford and the winger has since come out to defend himself.

He said: "I see other players dive, but I don't see people trying to get them banned the way they want me banned. I'll just play my football and continue the way I play."

Palace up for safe standing

Palace have opened up a petition for the fans to sign to allow the discussion of safe standing in Premier League and Championship football grounds.

Sports minister Tracey Crouch has already refused West Brom's application to trial safe standing.

A statement from the Eagles said: "We know that many of our fans want safe standing. We believe it should be debated in Parliament."

Hennessey to pen a new deal

Goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is being reported to be close to signing a new contract at Crystal Palace.

The current number one's contract is due to expire at the end of the campaign and his recent upturn in form appears to have earned him a new contract.

This also coincides with rumours that Atletico Madrid could be attempting to hijack Palace's move for Vicente Guaita.

Palace to sign Belgian star?

Crystal Palace are reportedly trying to sign Anderlecht's holding midfield Leander Dendoncker.

The 23-year-old Belgian international is believed to be looking to quit Anderlecht and the Daily Mail reports he is keen on a move to the Premier League.

With a few of Palace's centre midfield options out of contract this summer, it could be a smart move for the club.
