Crystal Palace head-coach Roy Hodgson has revealed that the London club are in process to seal the signature of Chelsea midfielder on a permanent basis this summer.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek moved to Selhurst Park last summer on a season long-loan from Chelsea and managed to score two times and set up other three goals in 24 appearances this season for the Eagles.


“He’s a fantastic player and of course we’d love to keep him. We’d love to bring him back but the bottom line is he was loaned to us for a season,” Hodgson told reporters.

“At the end of the season, the plan from Chelsea was that he would go back to them so I guess we’ll have to wait and see what their thinking is.”

“If they make him available in any way then, of course, we’ll be right there trying to get to the front of the queue with our hands up but it’s totally out of our hands. Chelsea will decide.”

The 22-year-old, who joined Chelsea academy at the age of eight, has made his senior debut for the club on 10 December 2014.
