Since their promotion from the Championship in 2013, Crystal Palace have cemented themselves as a consistent mid-table Premier League side, with gaffer Roy Hodgson only looking to push the South London club further up the table each campaign.
With the Eagles finishing in 12th place this year and a decent run in the FA Cup, making it to the quarter-finals, it looks as though Palace can only improve next season should they introduce the right players over the summer transfer window.
Last years’ transfer windows saw a lot of additions to the Palace squad including loan stars from top clubs and a free transfer from the Bundesliga, as Hodgson was given the task to identify which positions needed improving.
But how much have they impacted the squad this season? We have ranked the players that the 71-year-old has brought to Selhurst Park from A to F, depending on how well they have performed this season.
Cheikhou Kouyate - C
The Senegalese central defensive midfielder has proved to be a good acquisition when on the pitch, with some fans even calling for him to start.
Vicente Guaita - C
Although it took a while for Guaita to get his place, the Spaniard is a great shot stopper and turned out to be a great bit of business from the club.
Max Meyer - D
Since signing on a free the young German hasn’t stood out among the Palace squad, instead, he has shown flashes of what he is capable of and looks to be a good future prospect.
Jordan Ayew (loan) - D
Although he only scored two goals during at his time at the club, the attacker provided vital squad depth
Michy Batshuayi (loan) - C
The Eagles needed a great finisher up top, and that is exactly what the Belgian brought, scoring six goals during his time at the club; there is still a lot missing to his game, however.
Bakary Sako - E
The French-born winger has failed to make an impact on the squad after signing a short term contract in January from West Brom, only making four appearances.
