Sørloth finding the net for KAA Gent

19 March 2019

Alexander Sørloth joined the Belgium outfit, KAA Gent, on loan in the January transfer window for the rest of the season.

With 20 Palace appearances under his belt, Roy Hodgson opted to send Sørloth out on loan to further enhance the development of the 23-year-old.

With two goals in the Norwegian's last four games for the Jupiler Pro League side - three goals in total since joining on loan, which included a match-winning strike against RSC Anderlecht on his debut - Sørloth is proving to be a real asset for KAA Gent.

Having completed 90 minutes 10 times in 11 appearances, the former Rosenborg striker is a key man for manager, Jess Thorup, and has been pivotal in the current run of four wins on the bounce for the Belgium outfit.

KAA Gent currently sit in fifth position - with the league having now split into its play-off process - which will now see the top six sides play one another twice to determine the overall victor of the Belgium championship.

We wish Sørloth and KAA Gent all the best for the play-off process.
