​Crystal Palace loanee Sorloth delighted with Real Madrid links

Crystal Palace loanee Alexander Sorloth cannot deny he is happy at being linked with a move to Real Madrid.

The striker is enjoying an excellent season in Turkey with Trabzonspor, having gone on loan from the Premier League club for the season.

Sorloth is wanted by the likes of Aston Villa, but it is the surprise link to Real that intrigues the player the most.

He has 24 goals in all competitions this season.

Sorloth told Norwegian publication Tipsbladt: "I've heard as little as you did [on Real's interest].

"I sat in the locker room before the game against Besiktas and watched Snapchat that there was a lot of activity in our group of friends.

"There was someone who had linked to that article. It was a bit special to see before a game. I just had to try and use it as best I could to gain more confidence. And I did."
