Just when he thought he got away with it, it looks as if Carl Jenkinson’s career might well fall into the late-night kebab flavoured fingers of Sam Allardcye once more.
Yesterday it was reported that his potential move to Crystal Palace was off, as no agreement could be found when it came to personal terms.
However, the Palace manager isn’t giving up so easily as he seeks defensive recruitments to help keep the Eagles in the Premier League.
“Until the chairman rings me up and says Carl Jenkinson deal is dead, it’s still ongoing for me,” he said today.
However, Palace don’t appear to be much good at actually doing transfers with Allardyce saying they’ve tried to sign about 20 players in the January window thus far.
The only player who has arrived is Jeff Schlupp from Leicester, so there may well be an issue with how they’re approaching them.
Maybe they need to work on a different negotiating setting (see header pic).
