Kouyate and Ayew having Palace medicals

  Kouyate and Ayew having Palace medicals Cheikhou Kouyaté and Jordan Ayew are both due to have medicals ahead of potential moves to Crystal Palace this summer. Ed Aarons of The Guardian claims that Roy Hodgson’s men are closing in on a double swoop for the pair, while an official confirmation over a deal to sign Max Meyer is also imminent. The pair had been expected to move to Selhurst Park this summer, but Palace needed to reach an agreement with their respective clubs. Hodgson has been keen to bring in Kouyaté for extra mobility in midfield, but a deal was held by West Ham looking to send the player to Porto as part of a deal to sign Moussa Marega. Palace needed to strengthen in midfield after losing both Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Yohan Cabaye over the summer. Ayew had been expected to leave Swansea following their relegation. He had been linked tentatively with Liverpool and Celtic, but Palace have won the race to sign him.

Crystal Palace have offered manager Roy Hodgson a new contract that would keep him at the club until 2020 . Hodgson , though, looks set to be rewarded with a one-year extension after guiding them to a comfortable 11th-place finish.

"I am delighted to have extended my contract with Crystal Palace," said Hodgson.

"It is a club that has been close to my heart since I was a youngster growing up in the borough of Croydon, and having stood on the terraces in the 1950s, it is a wonderful thing to be managing my boyhood club all these years later.

"We can be proud of our achievements last season in turning things around despite a poor start, but this year we want to ensure we don't endure the same struggles.

"I am thrilled that I have the support of the owners, who believe that I am the right man to help this club move forward and I will do everything I can to make that happen."

Hodgson thinks team will remain unaffected by loss of Holmesdale Fanatics .
Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson believes his side will remain unaffected by the loss of the Holmesdale Fanatics. The supporters group had become a stalwart of Selhurst Park matches in recent years, occupying the front-left corner of the Holmesdale Stand and were often seen with flags carrying various messages. In addition, the group brought drums to matches and led much of the singing in South London. However, the club’s planned redevelopment of the stand however led to the group refusing to take their seats in protest, and Crystal Palace then sold the seats to other supporters. Despite the loss, Hodgson thinks it won’t cause too much of an impact: “We have 24,500 people coming in to see us play and I think all of them have that desire to get behind the team,” “If there’s a small band of people who for some reason are in some sort of dispute with the club, I hope that will get sorted out in the best possible way. But it won’t affect me, it won’t affect the team and it certainly won’t affect the atmosphere because, as I say, we’ve got 24 and a half thousand people who make the atmosphere and not just a particular group.” Palace will play their first home game of the season against Hodgson’s former club Liverpool on Monday night.
