Leon Cort says he wants his brother Carl to join him at Crystal Palace.
Crystal Palace new-boy Leon Cort says he wants his brother Carl to join him at Selhurst Park.
Former Hull defender Leon followed Peter Taylor to the London side at the end of June, and the Eagles boss has also tabled a bid for his brother and former Newcastle striker Carl.
The Eagles are desperate to find a replacement for Everton signing Andy Johnson, and have targeted the man who once starred in The Premiership for Wimbledon and The Magpies.
Wolves have already turned down one offer, but Leon says his older brother has his heart set on teaming up with his sibling at Selhurst Park.
"I spoke to Carl last week, and he wants to get everything sorted as soon as possible," Leon told the South London Press.
"He's had a few injuries, but he's still a good player. He would be good for Palace, and Palace would be good for him.
"For me, it would be a dream come true to play in the same team as my brother."
