Palace saved me from depression - Allardyce

  Palace saved me from depression - Allardyce Sam Allardyce said he had been given "closure" after the Telegraph was instructed to publish a correction regarding its 2016 report on him.Sam Allardyce says Crystal Palace pulled him "out of a depression" after he was sacked from the England manager's job in 2016.

Crystal Palace were forced to pull out of a deal to re-sign Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest target Bakary Sako this summer.

London News Online claim that Jason Puncheon’s failed move to Middlesbrough on transfer deadline day meant that the Eagles were unable to bring the winger back to Selhurst Park.

Roy Hodgson’s men were banking on Puncheon, who had fallen out of favour at the club, to leave this summer so they could free up a space within their Premier League squad ahead of the new season.

Sako saw his deal expire at Palace at the end of last season, but the club remained keen on keeping him around.

Palace in talks to re-sign Sako

  Palace in talks to re-sign Sako Crystal Palace are in advanced negotiations to re-sign Bakary Sako, according to Get French Football News. The winger’s contract at Selhurst Park expired in July, but the 30-year-old remains unattached after failing to seal a deal with a club. Instead, it seems a return to Palace may be on the cards. Sako joined the South Londoners in 2015 from Wolves, and made 50 appearances in his three seasons in the capital. A role-player, the Mali international found the majority of his playing time from the bench or in injury relief. Manager Roy Hodgson is clearly unsatisfied with the state of his squad following a subdued transfer window, even if four new arrivals did come through the door. The former England boss will be concerned that he failed to add a direct replacement for Sako, with loan addition Jordan Ayew happier at centre forward than on the wing. GFFN claim that negotiations could be wrapped up in a matter of hours.

They challenged the player to prove his fitness after a series of injuries kept him on the sidelines for the most of last season.

The player remains a free agent and has been attracting interest from the aforementioned Championship duo in recent weeks.

Free agents who Celtic could sign to help boost their stalling season .
After a couple of years of unimaginable success, Celtic have stalled in recent weeks under Brendan Rodgers and things aren’t going as well as they have been in the not-so-distant past.
