Nathan Ferguson seemed destined to join Crystal Palace in January, but the move collapsed as the Premier League club thought he required knee surgery.
Hodgson confirmed to football.london that Palace were in fact interested in Ferguson, however, can’t follow up their interest until he goes under the knife.
Yeah, I think at the moment the [knee] operation is the key. We don’t deny this was a player that really interested us. We’ve got to wait until the operation’s over, get the information back, find out what it means and then hopefully kick on from there.
READ WEST BROM VERDICT
He’s only in his first season of senior football, but he’s had a large role in guiding West Brom to the top of the Championship table.
If he can be snapped up for a similar or lower fee to what he was set to leave the Hawthorns for last month, I think it’d present seriously low risk with how much money Premier League clubs earn these days.
