Crystal Palace had a late move for Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo collapse, according to The Athletic.

Rojo, who was linked with several sides this summer, could have been moving on loan to Crystal Palace before the deal collapsed late on in the window.

The Eagles were looking for defensive reinforcements and eventually brought in Gary Cahill to play in the centre of defence.

However, one area of the pitch they failed to strengthen was full-back, something that Rojo would have solved.

Jairo Riedewald seems to be the backup option if Patrick van Aanholt is unfit, with the Dutchman playing against Colchester in the Carabao cup earlier this month.

Palace will almost certainly be looking for reinforcements in January however, and full-back is a position that has got to be strengthened
