Crystal Palace could lose Roy Hodgson in the summer after transfer failures

Crystal Palace boss Ry Hodgson could leave Selhurst Park in the summer unless he receives certain assurances over making new signings, according to The Times.

The former England manager joined the Eagles in 2017 when the team was mired in relegation after Frank de Boer’s reign saw a disastrous beginning to the campaign.

But the 72-year-old steadied the ship and managed to keep them in the top flight by the end of that season.

The experienced manager did more than a satisfactory job in his second season too, keeping Palace well above the drop-zone by finishing 12th in the league.

However, it now looks as though Hodgson would not be staying at the Eagles after the end of this campaign if he does not receive certain assurances about recruiting new players.

It is believed that he is unhappy about how the club conducted their transfer business in January.

The Glaziers missed out on West Brom defender Nathan Ferguson who was rated £10m by the Championship club, and they later made the only notable signing of Cenk Tosun on loan from Everton last month.

The South London club are currently 14th at the league table with just six points above the relegation zone.

They lost their previous two matches against Sheffield United and Southampton but also earned two commendable draws against Arsenal and Manchester City recently.
