The Blues have been chasing a front-man for some time and Irish international Morrison is set to join The Premiership new boys in a club record £4.5 million deal.
Polish marksman Emmanuel Olisadebe is thought to have priced himself out of a move to The Midlands outfit with his personal demands forcing Steve Bruce to swoop for 23-year-old Morrison.
Palace chairman Simon Jordan warned former Eagles coach Bruce from making a move for Morrison but now appears resigned to defeat in his bid to keep the Londoner at Selhurst Park.
Morrison is keen to play in the English top-flight as he looks to break into the Ireland starting line-up having not played a single minute in the recent World Cup finals.
