RB Leipzig chief Mintzlaff says Sorloth deal almost closed

RB Leipzig chief Oliver Mintzlaff has confirmed a deal for Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth is close.

After an outstanding loan with Trabzonspor last season, Sorloth is now in advanced talks to sign for RBL.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed the Norway international isn't part of his plans and Mintzlaff announced last night only minor details needed to be settled.

"We are on the home straight there," he declared.

A fee of €20m is set to be agreed, which will be shared between Palace and Trabzonspor.
