Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth has joined Belgian side Gent on loan for the rest of the campaign.

The 23-year-old signed for 9m from Norwegian side FC Midtjylland in January 2018 and played four times before the end of that season.

He has since been frozen out by Eagles manager Roy Hodgson who has preferred makeshift strikers Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend in attack while Christian Benteke has been injured.

His only Palace goal came against Swansea in the August's third-round League Cup win away.

With just three starts this term, the Norway international will be looking to get more matches under his belt while playing in Belgium.

Benteke is close to making a return to the first team, while fellow front man Connor Wickham is nearing full fitness after overcoming his major knee injury.
