Crystal Palace

Parish hopes to add to Palace squad

25th January 2019, 12:24 by Chris Rivers

Chairman Steve Parish says plans are afoot to add "one or two" more players to the Crystal Palace squad this month.

The Eagles completed a deal for Brazilian goalkeeper Lucas Perri on Thursday, landing him on loan until the end of the season to provide added competition for Wayne Hennessey and Vicente Guaita.

The next aim for the Londoners is to improve their attacking options and the club have been heavily linked with a move for Everton forward Cenk Tosun this week.

The Turkish striker is out of favour at Goodison Park and boss Marco Silva has indicated he can leave.

Another Toffee thought to be under consideration by Palace is former winger Yannick Bolasie, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Aston Villa but has since returned to Merseyside.

Bolaise enjoyed a productive spell at Selhurst Park, making 133 appearances and scoring 12 goals, and Everton are keen to offload him this month.

Speaking to Palace TV, Parish confirmed that the club are working on further additions and was hopeful of adding more bodies to Roy Hodgson's squad before the window slams shut.

"I think we are trying to be calm about what we do," he said. "It isn’t a great window to do business, there are opportunities rather than things you can make happen. You’ve got to look at each opportunity and shine a light on it - will it make us better?

"Everyone wants you to do something, but it’s important to do the right thing. We’re very excited about the ‘keeper [Lucas Perri] - that will be an exciting one for the future and we’ve got maybe one or, at a push, two, other things that we’ll be able to do before the deadline."
