Hearts join race for Palace Kugi
Hearts have joined the race for out-of-contract Palace striker Shefki Kuqi.
Kuqi has been linked with moves to Germany and Romania, plus West Brom and Middlesbrough have also shown an interest.
Kuqi has taken a step closer to what seems like an inevitable Eagles exit after saying he does not feel wanted at Selhurst Park.
Kuqi told the Croydon Advertiser: "If a club needs you then they will call you. They know my number and they know my situation - but I`ve not heard from the manager.
"I spoke to [Palace assistant] Mick Jones when I was on international duty, but I didn`t want to disturb the manager when he was recovering from his hip operation. But I`m not going to chase them."
