Crystal Palace target Solanke undergoes medical at Eagles

Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke has had a medical with Crystal Palace ahead of his loan move.

The 21-year-old has had limited opportunities at Anfield since joining the club from Chelsea in 2017.

He has not made a first team appearance this season but is still viewed as one for the future by Jurgen Klopp.

Palace manager Roy Hodgson is ready to give him his chance to play regular Premier League football.

The boss has managed to convince the Reading-born forward to move to Selhurst Park despite competition from Brighton, Huddersfield, Bournemouth and Rangers.

In 18 months at Anfield, Solanke has made 28 first-team appearances but scored just once – against Brighton in a 4-0 win on the final day of the 2017/18 season.

Solanke is highly regarded by England and has an excellent record at youth level, having helped the Under-20s to win the World Cup in 2017.

He went on to make his senior international debut in November 2017 as a substitute against Brazil, but has not received another cap since.
