Exclusive: Marcus Bent urges Crystal Palace to re-sign Ruben Loftus Cheek

Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast that Crystal Palace should re-sign Ruben Loftus Cheek this summer.

The midfielder is currently on loan at Fulham, but with the Londoners on course to be relegated, Loftus Cheek will return to Chelsea at the end of the season.

Would Sean Dyche be a good appointment for Crystal Palace?

But the England man has hardly featured for the Blues in recent seasons, and with Chelsea boasting a number of talented midfielders, Loftus Cheek isn’t likely to be given an opportunity under Thomas Tuchel.

And with reports suggesting that he’s not in Tuchel’s plans, Crystal Palace are interested in bringing him back, but this time permanently.

£60,000-a-week man Loftus Cheek enjoyed a productive stint across London three seasons ago, scoring twice, whilst laying on four assists in his 25 Premier League appearances, and Bent believes that a return to Selhurst Park would be a wise move.

Roy Hodgson's excellent Crystal Palace tenure appears to be drawing to a close but we bet you can't remember all of it! Test yourself below. Firstly, when was Hodgson appointed as Palace manager?

He told Football FanCast:

“Good player, I like him. He’s experienced in a sense, he’s been around. He’s not an attacking midfielder, but has got the legs to move around.

“He wouldn’t be moving far from Chelsea, it just depends on his price tag. I’m not sure how much they would want for him but Villa and Palace are looking to get him.”
