Hodgson reportedly ready to offload £19.8m-rated Crystal Palace star this summer

The Crystal Palace fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking to build on their recent performances and secure another three points against Watford on Saturday.

The Eagles have turned things around in recent weeks and have started to produce results to allow them to build a small gap between themselves and the relegation zone, with manager Roy Hodgson appearing to work wonders.

When the former England boss took over the reins at Selhurst Park, Palace appeared down and out at that very early stage having picked up no points from their opening four games.

However, he has managed to get the best out of Wilfried Zaha and Patrick van Aanholt, to name but a few, although striker Christian Benteke continues to frustrate.

And according to reports in The Daily Mail, the Eagles are ready to move the Belgium international on after managing just two goals in 27 Premier League games this term.

The 27-year-old is the highest earner at the South London club on wages around £120,000-a-week, and it is believed they are ready to listen to offers for the former Liverpool ace.

His future at the club was thrown further into doubt when Hodgson decided to use Andros Townsend alongside Zaha up front during their 3-2 victory against Brighton, whilst the pair were also used during their 2-2 draw with AFC Bournemouth a week prior.

And now it seems that Hodgson will indeed offload the £19.8m-rated (as per Transfermarkt) star this summer.

Landlord’s Verdict: The Palace fans in the Tavern will be hoping they can move Benteke on after he has failed to live up to the expectations many of the locals had, although a number of them will know they will not get anywhere near what they paid for him.

The punters will be more concerned about whether they will be able to keep Zaha rather than let the Belgian depart.
