Sakho in Palace talks

14 Enero 2018

Diafra Sakho is undergoing a medical at Crystal Palace after agreeing a move away from West Ham United.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson says that he is reluctant to be "tied down" with lots of players by the end of the January transfer window.

Roy Hodgson is keeping "quiet" Crystal Palace's linked move for Diafra Sakho but says the club are "working overtime" on signings. He has seen his opportunities limited and has been used largely as a substitute this season. And Hammers boss David Moyes is also thought to be keen on adding the Russian to his squad. However, the English tactician insisted on not giving updates on their pursuit of the former Metz striker.

Moyes has plenty of other forward options including Andy Carroll, Javier Hernandez and Andre Ayew, and the Scot should easily be able to cope without Sakho, especially considering the peripheral role he has played recently.

"Our plans have never changed", Hodgson said.

The Hammers squad is incredibly imbalanced, and the addition of a central midfielder and centre-back will be Moyes' priority this month.

"We have been thinking about that since I came in September and the people who are working on this, our scouting department, Doug Freedman, Steve Parish and our owners are working overtime to try and identify people".
