Holloway eyes up to four new January signings
EAGLES manager Ian Holloway has hinted he would like to bring in up to four new players to Crystal Palace in the current January transfer window.
In his first exclusive column in Friday's Croydon Advertiser, Holloway reveals he turned down an offer for three of his players from a club lower down in the Football League earlier this week, but in terms of players arriving at Selhurst Park, he admits he's been on the phone non-stop making enquiries.
"We're looking at every single option – players up and around the country," he told Advertiser Sport.
"I think we've got to bring in one, two, three, maybe even four people if I can.

"I know the positions I would like to strengthen. It's about getting the right person instead of jumping of anything, but I think there will be a mad rush at the end of the month."
At the time of going to press on Thursday morning, one of the three players Holloway had turned down a loan approach for, Ibra Sekajja, has now joined Barnet on loan.
But Manchester City striker Alex Nimely has joined Palace in a loan deal this afternoon to support Holloway's attacking options and has been given squad number 23.
For Holloway's first full-page column, where he talks in-depth about racism in football on the back of the Kevin-Prince Boateng incident last week in Italy, plus his thoughts on heading to Burnley on Saturday and goalkeeper Lewis Price, do not miss tomorrow's Croydon Advertiser.
