AGENT RULES OUT CRYSTAL PALACE OR NOTTINGHAM FOREST MOVE FOR £7M STRIKER

The agent of Krasnodar striker Jhon Cordoba has ruled out a January move to Premier League duo Crystal Palace or Nottingham Forest after Fulham removed their name from the frame earlier this week.

 

With 21 goals last season, and a further 11 this, the well-travelled Jhon Cordoba has produced the best football of his career since moving to Russia.

 

So much so that, with a number of Premier League clubs looking for attacking reinforcements during the winter window, Cordoba’s name is doing the rounds among teams loitering from the mid-to-lower reaches of the division.

According to The Standard, there is interest from a Nottingham Forest side who recently lost Taiwo Awoniyi to a long-term injury.

 

Crystal Palace, averaging only slightly more than a goal-per-game under Roy Hodgson, have also been mentioned in conjunction with the bruising, 6ft 2ins Colombia international.

 

But, despite reports suggesting that Krasnodar may consider a loan-to-buy deal in the £7 million bracket, Cordoba’s representative has left no one in any doubt about what the immediate future holds for the one-time La Liga and Bundesliga hitman.

Jhon will stay at Krasnodar until the end of the season,” Christian Wine tells RB Sport.

 

Wine’s comments come a day after Fulham removed themselves from the discussion.

 

Brian Talbot, a scout at Craven Cottage, seemingly rubbished reports linking Cordoba with a switch to West London.

“The information that we want to loan Cordoba with an option-to-buy in the winter transfer window is not correct,” Talbot tells Match TV.
