Dominic Solanke set for Palace switch

Another player set to leave Merseyside on loan is Dominic Solanke who is on the verge of joining Crystal Palace for the rest of the season after undergoing a medical at Selhurst Park.

The 21 year old striker, who has one full cap for England, has not made a single senior appearance for Liverpool this season, has had few opportunities since joining The Reds from Chelsea last July, but, despite this, Jurgen Klopp still believes that he is one for the future, and is not ready to sell him on a permanent basis.

Palace, who are desperately short of goals, with Christian Benteke still injured, need a striker, and, according to The Daily Mail, manager Roy Hodgson is prepared to offer Solanke the chance to play regular first-team football.

Solanke has managed only one goal in his fledgling Liverpool career, and never scored for Chelsea, for whom he made one substitute appearance. However, did find the net seven times during a loan spell at Vitesse Arnhem.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
