Crystal Palace will be in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

According to The Sun, “Roy Hodgson has joined the race for Fulham full-back Ryan Fredericks. The Crystal Palace boss is eyeing the 25-year-old as Joel Ward has not agreed a new contract and could leave for free this summer. Fredericks is also on a Bosman and has attracted interest after putting Fulham on the promotion trail in the Championship. West Ham have watched the former Tottenham right-back and there has also been interest from Arsenal.”
