Crystal Palace have failed with a bid for Colombian international Jairo Patino. The Eagles lodged a 3 million euros bid for Patino on Tuesday - but
River Plate wasted little time in deciding not to accept. Palace wanted Patino to come to England on loan until the end of the current campaign, with
a view to sealing a permanent deal. However, River - who only bought Patino from Newell's Old Boys last year - have insisted they have no plans to
lose the South American. Patino, 26, admitted he would like the chance to play in England - but not at the moment.
