According to the "Mirror" news, Crystal Palace coach Hodgson talked about the transfer rumors with Nelson in an interview. He said: "There is no dialogue about Nelson, but he is indeed a good player."
Hodgson said in the interview: "I don't know anything about it, but this is the problem, these connections."
"Sports Director Doug Friedman has received a lot of phone calls from players and many people asked him questions. If he thinks this is a topic of interest to me and the coaching staff, he will put it on Bring it to us."
"I must honestly say that we have not had any conversations about Nelson at the moment. But that doesn't mean I don't think he is a good player. For any club that signs him, he will be a fortune. Good signing."
Hodgson also talked about Zaha’s transfer rumors: "Well, I have been told, I think Zaha has also understood our thoughts, and we are not interested in transactions that are delayed very late."
"If this happens, it should happen within a certain period of time, and then we will see what we can do with the money. It is now near the end of the transfer window. Of course I hope this will not happen. I want to continue with him. Cooperation."
