Crystal Palace boss Hodgson reluctant to see Puncheon sold

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson admits he'd be reluctant to lose Jason Puncheon in January.

The midfielder has been restricted to League Cup action so far this season.

But Hodgson says, "He's played in all of the League Cup games and came on as a substitute so he's obviously very much part of our plans. Who knows what January is going to bring, what offers are going to come our way, what players are going to come and knock on my door and complain about not getting enough football - I'll have to wait and see.

"At the moment Jason Puncheon is very much part of our plans, the way we play and he's very disappointed tonight because in the previous two rounds we've done really well and won and tonight we missed an opportunity by not being able to win this game."
