Cape Town - Everton have joined Crystal Palace in the race to sign Norwich City's goalkeeper John Ruddy.

The 28-year-old Englishman remained with the Canaries this season after they were relegated from the English Premiership and still has two and half years left remaining on his contract, according to the Mirror.

Crystal Palace coach Neil Warnock is hoping to bring in the Norwich star to compete with current number one Julian Speroni who is in the final year of his contract at Selhurst Park.

Ruddy is unlikely to leave Carrow Road for less than £4 million. 

The Toffees are looking for a long-term replacement for American Tim Howard, who turns 36 next year.

Ruddy is no stranger to Goodison Park, having been at the club as an understudy from 2005 to 2010.
