Roy Hodgson has rubbished Jermain Defoe’s assertion Crystal Palace wanted to sign him.

“I can state quite categorically we made no move at all to sign Jermain here.



Palace boss Hodgson, though, has vigorously denied his claim.



“I like him and I think he’s good player and I’m pleased he’s gone to Glasgow Rangers, but we were not one of the candidates for his signature.” Defoe had said: "There was interest, I had to weigh it all up, and I fancied something different to be honest, I fancied a different challenge, especially one where people were like, 'I'm not too sure on that one'.

“It’s not true unfortunately, we had no interest in Jermain Defoe.

"The Palace one was lingering for years - I know a lot of people down there, Mark Bright, a lot of the players.

“I saw his name mentioned in relation to the club but it’s one thing people relating their players that they’re anxious to find moves for to our club and another thing our club initiating moves to sign a player.
