Cheikhou Kouyate has demanded that West Ham bosses allow him to join Crystal Palace.
That's according to friends of the Senegalese footballer.
If the reports turn out to be true, then Kouyate could be on his way to Selhurst Park.
'He's hoping to join up with Alan Pardew', said the source. 'The two of them have been on talking terms for a while now.'
The transfer is expected to be in the region of €12 million.
