CRYSTAL PALACE, Allardyce: "I'm planning for BENTEKE not to leave us"

13 January, 2017, 00:41 | Author: Felix Jensen

Crystal Palace are 17th in the top flight - one place above the relegation zone - and Belgium global, who has eight league goals this season, has not scored in his last five games.

Benteke, a £27 million summer signing from Liverpool, has been linked with a move to China following Allardyce's arrival.

"I think he will be available for this weekend and I'm planning on him being here at the end of this window".

"He has scored eight goals already for Crystal Palace this season so he has a major part to play - particularly in that goal scoring area - for us to stay safe in the Premier League, so I expect him to be here when the window shuts".

"My interest is to strengthen the defensive areas at this time", he said this morning. Loic [Remy] is fit again. Strengthening attack is not my priority - keeping clean sheets is a priority for me. We have to live with those prices because it's a necessity for us to strengthen our defence.

According to The Sun, Eagles manager Sam Allardyce made enquiries about taking Jenkinson on loan until the end of the season but is now hopeful of securing his services on a permanent deal for a fee of around £3m.

"Never say never but at the moment he is a Crystal Palace player", said former England boss Allardyce.

"One [addition] would be nice - to start with!"

"We have been very busy (looking at transfers) without any great success so far", he added.

He can do a shift defensively too although given Palace's propensity to get forward to showcase their best players, it could be his dribbling and passing ability that is most attractive for Allardyce.

New Palace manager Sam Allardyce signed Jenkinson on loan when he was in charge at West Ham, and Allardyce admitted on Thursday that he was in the market for defenders.
