Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt is a target for PSV, according to a report from the Mirror.

It’s claimed that the Dutchman is wanted by PSV on a loan deal until the end of the ongoing season, with the defender currently finding first-team game time hard to come by.

Van Aanholt joined Palace last January for a fee of around £12 million from Sunderland but has only been used sporadically, with Jeffrey Schlupp also competing for his place on the left-hand side of defence. He has, however, been featuring more regularly under Roy Hodgson in recent times.

Palace will be hoping to retain the services of their key men in the January transfer window as they remain in the midst of a relegation battle. Although their form has improved drastically in the last few months, points remain close between the teams in the bottom half.

Van Aanholt, 27, has made nine Premier League starts this season.
