Palace keeper: We all love loan hit defender to bits

"What I find incredible is he does this after spending more than a year without playing, that's what's fantastic, and it shows the quality and mental strength of the player, how much of a professional he is, to be at the level he is today, to have stayed in shape".

Sakho has won five of his six Premier League games, keeping four clean sheets in the process, and is now in demand.

He subsequently joined Crystal Palace on loan in the January transfer window. "If I were to wear the Liverpool jersey again, I would be happy to do so", Sakho told Telefoot.

The Black Eagles are the reigning Turkish league champions and favourites to defend the title this season.

On-loan Crystal Palace defender Mamadou Sakho has revealed that he would be open to remaining at Liverpool next season should Jurgen Klopp welcome him back.

Sakho is clearly a talented player, but no one knows the damage in Sakho or Klopp's relationship apart from those two themselves.

"Obviously I am not the chairman but you have seen the impact he has had since he's come in", Sakho was quoted as saying by London News Online post-match.

Interest over whether or not Sakho will return to the leaky Liverpool defence has only been further intensified by his performances on loan with the Eagles. I paid my fine.

'I was late for training, something that happens everywhere.

Whether or not that is proving enough to change Jürgen Klopp's thinking, remains to be seen.

Defensively Liverpool are in need of reinforcements during the summer, with Joel Matip in need of a decent partner while James Milner has been forced to play left-back, although the former Manchester City midfielder has impressed while operating out of position.
