Hodgson in dark over Eagles transfers
Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson says he is unsure whether he will be able to bring in any more new signings before the deadline.
Bakary Sako has returned to Selhurst Park on a short-term deal until the end of the season, but Hodgson knows his squad is lacking strength and hopes for at least one more.
The Eagles boss is happy with the quality in his ranks but feels he is lacking numbers to get him through until the end of the season.
Speaking after Wednesday night's 1-1 draw with Southampton, Hodgson said he is more hopeful than confident as today's deadline fast approaches.
Asked if he expects Palace to make any new signings before the conclusion of the January transfer window, the 71-year-old responded: "I'm happy with the squad I've got but it's not that big. I don't know that there's any activity planned.
"We've brought in Bakary Sako. I was told we'd bring in two players but I don't count the young goalkeeper (loanee Lucas Perri); a goalkeeper was far from a priority."
