Jordan set to sell up at Selhurst.

CRYSTAL Palace chairman Simon Jordan is to sell the club he bought out of administration in 2000.

He says he is disillusioned following the decision of a Football League tribunal to award the Eagles only pounds 700,000 following 16-year-old John Bostock's move to Tottenham.

"I kept my sanity by pumping millions of pounds into my academy," said Jordan. "feeling the saving grace of my club was finding players who would be chomping at the bit and honoured to play in the first team. But that's been taken away from me as well.

Bostock was one of the best players my academy has produced in the last 10 years - and he has been sold for a packet of crisps."
