Crystal Palace Sign Everton Striker Cenk Tosun On Loan Until The End Of The Season

What Was Said

Speaking to Crystal Palace website, Chairman Steve Parish said: “We’re delighted to have secured Cenk’s services for the remainder of the season. We’ve enjoyed a great first half of the campaign and Cenk’s arrival will bolster our squad as we push for a top-half Premier League finish.

“Cenk has a proven record as a goalscorer and we’ve admired him for some time, so I’m very pleased to welcome him to Crystal Palace.”

Fresh Addition in Attack

Roy Hodgson has already had to deal with a depleted squad this season, with Palace being plagued by injuries.

However, injuries have still not prevented the Eagles in finding a regular goalscorer. Jordan Ayew is currently the top-scorer the season, with just five to his name.

Furthermore, Connor Wickham is the only other striker to register a goal this season. However, he could be set for a loan away from Selhurst Park in order to regain fitness.

As a result, Cenk Tosun provides Roy Hodgson with fresh addition in attack.

The arrival of the Turkish international may see Jordan Ayew move out into a wider position. Palace look set to continue without wingers Andros Townsend and Jeffrey Schlupp for the foreseeable future, meaning Hodgson has been left short in attack.

Palace are currently ninth in the Premier League, having collected 28 points from 21 games.

However, they have just one win in their last five games, a 2-1 win over West Ham on Boxing Day.

Furthermore, they are faced with two difficult games in the forthcoming weeks. They must take on Arsenal at Selhurst Park, before travelling north to battle Manchester City.
