Crystal Palace: Alexander Sorloth opens up on Trabzonspor loan spell

Crystal Palace loanee Alexander Sorloth has opened up on his future after having an interview with Norwegian broadcaster TV2 (via Inside Futbol).

The forward is currently on a two-year loan spell with Trabzonspor in Turkey and is having a great time after scoring eight goals in his opening 16 games for the club, according to stats from Transfermarkt.

After being deemed surplus to requirements in SE25, Sorloth is now back enjoying his football again, stating that the nature of the two-year deal has allowed him to relax about his future.

Speaking to TV2 (via Inside Futbol), he said: “It is okay with the two-year loan.

“I can remain calmer and do not have to think about moving.

“And that [thinking about my next move] is kind of stressful.”

There’s no surprise Sorloth is enjoying himself in Turkey, as his time at Palace was difficult.

After not being able to reach the first team at Palace, it must be refreshing for the young player to be back playing football and scoring goals.

During his time at Palace, he was only able to register one goal in 20 appearances and had to make many of those appearances from the bench.

Sorloth’s stock has risen considerably since his time at Trabzonspor, and the Norwegian is now back in the national side, and even scored in his last match against Romania.

If he can continue this good form, then he will be in a strong position once his loan finishes to either get a bigger move than Trabzonspor or even get back into Palace’s side.

It’s a positive for both Palace and Sorloth that he’s in good form, as it means his value may well increase for when he returns.

Palace might not want him to do too well though, as they may start to be regretting sending out a player in such good form when they have players such as Christian Benteke struggling to find the net, with the player not scoring in his opening ten matches this season.
