Crystal Palace have agreed a deal to sign Porto defender Bruno Martins Indi, Sky sources understand.

Sky Sports News HQ understands Martins Indi will head to Selhurst Park subject to agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

Martins Indi spent last season on loan at Stoke City and had been expected to return to the Potteries on a permanent deal.

He was nearly ever present for Mark Hughes' side, playing in 35 Premier League games and scoring a single goal.

But their option to sign him expired on July 1 and the Netherlands international now seems set to join fellow Dutchman Frank de Boer, who is now in charge at Selhurst Park.
