Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth has insisted that his Premier League dream is not over despite him joining Gent on loan on Tuesday.

Sorloth was a bit part player at Crystal Palace this season and his only goal this term came in the EFL Cup before the club loaned him out to Gent this week.

The striker travelled, underwent a medical and signed a loan contract with Gent on Tuesday, and is looking to rejuvenate his career in Belgian football.

Sorloth feels an injury last season derailed his career after he made a steady start to life in the Premier League at Crystal Palace.

“It started well in the Premier League”, the striker told Norwegian broadcaster TV2.

“I got right in and got to play some games, and I thought I was doing well but then I got an injury.

“This season has been tough.”

The striker is keen to play more football in the latter half of the season and score some goals for Gent in order to get some of his confidence back.

He insisted that he has a future in the Premier League and wants to return to Crystal Palace in the summer with a renewed hope of playing in the top tier of English football.

“The reason for the loan move is to regain confidence, play football matches, hopefully, score some goals and return stronger.

“The Premier League train has not left yet.

“I still have three years left on the contract with Palace and I believe that I can still play in the Premier League.”
