The January relocation window has been open for more than two weeks and Crystal Palace has welcomed a new signature for the club.
The Eagles signed Everton striker Cenk Tosun on loan until the end of the season, with the Turkish striker making his 1-1 draw for Arsenal at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
There was also a departure from Palace this month, with the loan spell from Spanish midfielder Victor Camarasa ending when he left to join Alaves on a loan agreement.
But there is speculation this month about further transfers involving Palace, with clubs interested in signing some men from the Eagles’ stars, while Roy Hodgson is eager to strengthen his team before running in.

The Palace will face Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend, and ahead of the trip to the Etihad stadium, let’s watch the latest news on the Eagles, below.
Aston Villa warning on Benteke
Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke was linked with a return to Aston Villa this month.
The Belgian forward has not shown up for the eagles since December 21 due to an injury, but has been linked with a move, with Villa interested in signing him on loan as they continue to fight to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
But former Villa striker Stan Collymore warned his old lineup of the attempt to sign Benteke in January.
“I don’t share the optimism of my fellow fans,” he said, as quoted by the Mirror.
“I’ve always heard the boy [Benteke] he had no personality to kick and realize his undoubted potential.
“He’s calm, grumpy and doesn’t seem to have the joy of the sport. Liverpool and Crystal Palace have broken Benteke and, although he can feel a thrill of excitement in taking up the goals he scored at Villa, you can’t just turn it on and off like a tap.
“That ship sailed – for him and the club.”
Nabil Bentaleb most recent
Crystal Palace is leading the race to sign former Spurs midfielder Nabil Bentaleb in January, reportedly in Germany.
The midfielder fell out of favor at Schalke 04 and was strongly tied to a move in January, with Everton, Crystal Palace and Lyon, all interested in signing the 25-year-old.
But recent reports in Germany suggest that Palace is in pole position to sign it, with Schalke intending to be willing to leave it on loan, with a purchase option.
Admission to the transfer of Wilfried Zaha
The future of Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha is once again in the spotlight this month, among the interests reported by Chelsea, Tottenham and Bayern Munich.
But in the summer he was strongly tied to a move to Arsenal or Everton, with both sides having refused offers from the Eagles.
And Everton’s football director, Marcel Brands, has now admitted that it was “unrealistic” that the Toffe could sign Zaha.
“Look at last summer, from the beginning there were many rumors and news that we would like to catch [Wilfried] Zaha, “quoted Brands as stated by the Liverpool echo during the Everton general assembly.
“And if you see our numbers then you know it’s not realistic for Everton to buy a player for £ 60 million, £ 70 million, £ 80 million.
“So that kind of expectation is sometimes a different kind of expectation for fans and it’s not realistic and we have to manage it.
“Sure, we want to get the best players but we have to be realistic if you see our numbers.”
