Crystal Palace have asked Cardiff for a reference on Real Betis midfielder Victor Camarasa, according to Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock.
The Eagles are looking to bolster their options in the middle of the park ahead of the new campaign and Camarasa has been identified as a target by manager Roy Hodgson.
Having enjoyed a season on loan at Cardiff last term, Warnock has confirmed his former club Palace have been in touch to ask about Camarasa’s credentials ahead of a potential offer to Betis.
Warnock said: “They (Palace) rang us up about him. “What can we say, we were gutted, really, but we gave him a good reference.” Burnley enquired as well, there were one or two clubs and I’m sure he’ll enjoy it.
He’s a good player, one of the best midfield players I’ve had under me.”
