Osayi-Samuel is no stranger to football in England having rose through the Blackpool academy before being signed by QPR in 2017.

Fenerbahce signed the 25-year-old on a €508k [Transfermarkt] move in January 2021 on a four-year deal.

Osayi-Samuel has one international cap for Nigeria and would be eligible to play in England without needing a work permit.

Fenerbahce are currently second in the Super Lig, four points behind leaders Galatasaray.

The Yellow Canaries are also competing in the Europa League, booking a place in the Last 16 after topping their group.

Palace have also been closely linked with another Super Lig player this week; Galatasaray right-back Sacha Boey.
