Benteke urges Crystal Palace to buy today

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke is hoping they can add to the squad today.

Benteke scored only his second goal in 19 appearances this season against West Ham and the Belgian has welcomed the arrival of more forward options.

But Benteke has said he will fight for his place in the team.

Benteke said: “Hopefully if we can bring another quality player in it will be more than welcome. I am ready to fight for my place. At times I felt I was lonely but last season it was the same and I managed to score goals, so it is not really an excuse."

Chung-yong Lee is due to leave Palace today to return to Bolton on loan.
