Dominic Solanke’s move to Crystal Palace has fallen through Roy Hodgson all but confirmed.

Hodgson revealed the deal looks highly unlikely despite Solanke agreeing to make the loan switch from Liverpool.

It had emerged that there was interest from Germany for the hitman, a move which manager Jurgen Klopp favoured for the 21-year-old.

“Yes, it seems to be dead,” said Hodgson.

“Unfortunately it is a club decision.

“We were interested of course. We think he is a good player. But it turns out there were complications, a lot of factors involved in it, and the club decided it wasn’t the right moment for us to be doing it.

“We do feel a bit disappointed for the player, because he had made his mind up in our favour, so it looked as though it was going to work out, but it didn’t work out in the end.

“These are things that you accept as a manager, because there are always elements that are beyond certainly the coach's control.”

The collapse of the Solanke signing may increase Palace’s effort in pursuing Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham whom they’ve also been linked with.

Abraham, currently flourishing on loan at Aston Villa seems keen on a move to a Premier League club and it’s thought that Wolves had tabled an £18 million bid for the striker.

“We are on the look-out of course, and the chairman (Steve Parish), and technical director (Doug Freedman), they are anxious to do what they can to give me and my coaching staff more support.

“But it is not easy, it is not an easy transfer window, certainly when you have limited financial resources.”

One player who looks certain to leave Selhurst Park is Jason Puncheon.

Regularly finding himself on the bench this season he has been heavily linked with Huddersfield who would offer the game time the 32-year-old craves.

"This is now a matter between the two clubs," said Hodgson.

"I have told Jason that because I haven’t been able to give him anything like the amount of playing time that he would like and probably deserves, I won’t stand in his way if the two clubs reach an agreement.

"I don’t know exactly where the two clubs are in that respect. I have had a conversation with Jason Puncheon and he is keen to get regular first team football, especially in the Premier League."
