Norway No2 Hansen hails Crystal Palace-owned Sorloth: Magical what he's done

Norway assistant coach Per Joar Hansen has heaped praise on Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth.

On-loan with Trabzonspor, Sorloth finished the season the SuperLig's top scorer and will be lost to Palace for a cut-price €6m.

"It's magical what he's done. He should have a big part of the credit for Trabzonspor fighting for gold, because he has had a fantastic season," said Hansen.

"It is not surprising that there is interest from larger clubs. He is still young and has shown an amazing mentality throughout his career."

Sorloth helped Trabzonspor to victory in the Turkish Cup final last night, scoring in the 2-0 defeat of Alanyaspor.
