Alexander Sorloth has joined KAA Gent for the remainder of the season Crystal Palace have announced.

The forward joins the Belgian Pro League club having yet to score a league goal for the Eagles since his £9million arrival from FC Midtjylland in January 2018.

It was widely rumoured the Norwegian would be seeking first team football having had little opportunity under Roy Hodgson at Palace.

The departure is the third at Selhurst Park this month after Jonny Williams and Jason Puncheon moved on to Charlton and Huddersfield respectively.

Hodgson makes no secret of his desire to bring in fresh faces on the attacking front as injuries to Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham have left him short of numbers up front.
