Lots of Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after the news broke of Alexander Sorloth’s imminent move to Turkish outfit Trabzonspor.

A video was taken of the Norwegian striker at an airport being welcomed by his new supporters like he’s Lionel Messi, despite the move not yet being confirmed by Palace.
The 23-year-old arrived at Selhurst Park in a £9m deal from Norwegian side FC Midtjylland back in January 2018, and it is safe to say that he has been a huge failure for the Eagles.
Sorloth has netted just one goal for the south Londoners, coming against Swansea in the Carabao Cup – he spent time out on loan with Gent last term having found game time hard to come by at Selhurst Park.
Have Sky Sports been exposed as liars this summer? Watch the video below to find out why…
As the move is yet to be made official at the time of writing, we do not know whether the deal is a loan or a permanent transfer, although one would assume the Palace fans will just be happy to see the back of their misfiring No.9.
Let’s take a look at how the Palace fans on Twitter reacted to Sorloth’s imminent exit…
And I thought we were desparate for a new signing… #cpfc

Actually think hes going to do really well over there, got a strange feeling he’ll score 15+ goals there

Alexander Sorloth, memories of Antonio Pedroza. So much expectation followed by a swift exit.

Will say it again, we must have a forward lined up to let Sorloth go. Our squad can’t keen getting thinner.
