Alan Nixon on twitter (usually more reliable than most on twitter, but that isn't saying much!) has suggested a couple of times that we are one of the teams in for Solanke on loan. Something came up which stopped the deal happening with Palace. At the time I thought Liverpool were potentially inserting a minimum game time clause and that's why Palace pulled out but who knows. From the admittedly little I've seen of Solanke, he is pretty poor.
