rystal Palace is in talks with a number of players about new contracts, including striker Christian Benteke.
Palace has 12 high-ranking players – as well as manager Roy Hodgson – from the contract this summer, including Patrick van Aanholt, Andros Townsend and Gary Cahill.
Confident that the players the club is keen to keep will remain, Hodgson is aware of the dangers that can arise when contracts expire.
« It is a worrying moment for any manager when they have players who are under contract and who may speak to other clubs and pave the way for the exit, » he said.
« But it’s something we are working on with these players and I am confident that we will make the deal with the players that we hope we can secure because we have a group of players here that seem. « To feel very comfortable in the club and to do your work here.
« So I hope it doesn’t cause huge problems. In this case, we may need to use the January transfer window to fix the problem. «
Not having to start a game this season, Benteke signed a one-year contract last term to keep him from receiving a free transfer and has been offered another contract extension. However, the Belgian international is also soliciting the interest of other Premier League clubs.
The 29-year-old, one of Palace’s top earners, remains happily at the club but could go free if the first-team’s chances don’t present themselves before the end of the season.
The Eagles will face Newcastle at Selhurst Park on Friday night, still without Wilfried Zaha, after testing positive for coronavirus last week.
« We are certainly much deeper than in the past, » he said. « There was a time when we had to play without him for a long time and it didn’t go well. But we don’t plan for that to happen again. «
