Crystal Palace signed Alexander Sørloth from FC Midtjylland in January 2018 and the striker penned a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Eagles.

Due to limited playing time, Roy Hodgson allowed the 23-year-old to go out on loan to Turkish club Trabzonspor until 2021. The English club announced the deal on their official website and apart from the temporary deal, no additional details were mentioned.

Transfermarkt mentions the attacker’s contract at Selhurst Park runs down in 2022, but Norway’s TV2 claims he signed an extension with the Premier League side before going out on loan.

Sørloth gave his view on the Crystal Palace decision.

“Palace will still see how my development goes. At the same time, if I complete the two-year loan then I have only one year left of the contract, and then it is difficult for them to have any good negotiating cards after the end of the loan period,” he said.

The Norway international has had a good start to his life at Trabzonspor, scoring three goals in the first seven matches in all competitions.

Even though his immediate focus is with the Super Lig side, the player has not given up on finding his way in the Premier League.

“As long as it is on the table, you obviously have a goal about it [Premier League]. But right now, I’m really just thinking about doing as best as I can at Trabzonspor, continuing to score goals and being able to fight for trophies,” he added.

Sørloth’s is unsurprisingly in Norway’s squad for the upcoming international fixtures.
