DONE DEAL: Hodgson signs Benfica midfielder Rakip for Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has made his first signing for the club by bringing in Erdal Rakip on loan from Benfica for the rest of the season, reports BBC Sport.

Midfielder Rakip is a Sweden Under-21 international and only moved to the Portuguese side from hometown club Malmo earlier this month.

"I believe this is a league that suits me and my way of playing," said the 21-year-old.

"I hope to adapt quickly in order to help the team and show my qualities."
