Palace boss Peter Taylor claims he has struck a deal with Millwall for the left-back who has been tipped as a future Premier League player.
With Danny Granville leaving Selhurst Park and Gary Borrowdale also set to depart, Taylor is keen to finalise the move as quickly as possible.
"I can confirm we have agreed things with Millwall and I am hopeful it will be completed," he told the South London Press.
"I will be disappointed to lose Gary - but I am delighted to get someone like Tony in."
Palace chairman Simon Jordan confirmed earlier in the week that talks were continuing with Lincoln over defender Jeff Hughes.
And Taylor said: "We are speaking to Lincoln about Jeff Hughes.
"It would be terrific to get both players as they would really help our squad."
