According to reports today, Chris Hughton hopes to push home his interest in Moses this weekend.

The 19-year-old, who was withdrawn by the club's administrators from the Palace squad which played at Newcastle on Wednesday evening, also has interest from Newcastle's promotion rivals Nottingham Forest and West Brom.

Chris Hughton: "It's been documented that we are very interested in signing the lad.

"Most people are also aware of the circumstances with Crystal Palace and the situation they are in, and we hope to make progress on that over the next couple of days.

"It's one we have a very, very keen interest in.

"He is a player who has an ability to score goals. There is a power and pace, but it is his potential.

"Around what we are trying to do here this season, which is the most important thing, there also has to be an eye on the future, and he is certainly a player of wonderful potential."
