Palace have no option to make Sakho's move from Liverpool permanent

  Palace have no option to make Sakho's move from Liverpool permanent Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that previous reports which suggested that Crystal Palace have an option to make Mamadou Sakho’s loan move a permanent deal in the summer are incorrect. Speaking at his press conference ahead of Liverpool’s game with West Brom this weekend, the German boss told reporters that there is no clause in the deal, which will be a blow to Palace fans. The French international has been in great form for the Eagles since breaking into the squad in recent weeks and most fans would agree that they’d like to keep him at the club on a permanent basis. However, Liverpool are apparently asking for around £30million for the 27-year-old and, if he carries on playing at his current level, there’ll probably be a club willing to splash the cash on him. A high asking price might not completely rule Palace out of the running to sign Sakho but with no clause in place, he’s likely to have a large number of options as his disposal.

Crystal Palace will attempt to sign Manchester City and France full-back Bacary Sagna on a free transfer this summer, according to a report in the print edition of the Mirror.

The French full-back already has a reported one-year contract offer on the table from West Ham but he’s yet to sign it and Crystal Palace look set to offer him a similar deal.

Allardyce tried to sign Arsenal’s Carl Jenkinson on loan in January so it looks like he sees right-back as a position where he needs to add some depth and Sagna could be the man he brings in to beef up the squad.

VIDEO REVIEW | Crystal Palace 0-1 Tottenham .
In this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast, I review the game against Tottenham by giving you my match review, player rankings as well as my Man of the Match. Palace suffered just a second defeat in nine games as they lost out 1-0 at home. Crystal Palace held Tottenham for much of the game, battled well throughout and looked to be heading for a decent point to keep their fine run of form going but fell behind to a 30-yarder from Christian Erikson 17 minutes from time. The evening also hosted a nasty looking knee injury to Mamadou Sakho that saw the influential defender stretched off in some agony early in the second half. How much of a miss will Mamadou Sakho be? Will Palace avoid the drop? All this and more in this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast. Subscribe to The e-Crystal Palace Podcast for more weekly podcasts and opinion pieces from Palace fans.
