CRYSTAL Palace are interested in signing released Sunderland defender Carlos Cuellar on a free transfer, according to reports today.

Cuellar’s two-year stint at the Stadium of Light will come to an end when his Sunderland contract expires next month after the Black Cats opted against renewing the Spaniard’s deal.

The 32-year-old has been keeping an open mind over his next move, with the prospect of remaining in England or returning to his homeland.

But Palace could offer Cuellar the chance to stay in the Premier League, with reports that Eagles boss Tony Pulis is in talks with the former Aston Villa and Rangers centre-half.
