One of Crystal Palace’s breakthrough prospects could depart the club on loan in January, with several EFL clubs interested.

The January transfer window is just a few hours away from becoming active. Who would you like to see Crystal Palace make a move for in the winter window?

While the transfer market is not currently active, this hasn’t stopped clubs from completing eye-catching deals. Perhaps the most notable is Liverpool’s move for Cody Gakpo, who had previously been linked with their bitter rivals, Manchester United.

The Eagles have already been linked with several players - Ross Stewart, who currently plays for Sunderland, is one of them. Despite this, they are far from the only club in the race - Brentford, Stoke City, Middlesbrough and Rangers are also interested in him, according to Sky Sports reporter Keith Downie on Twitter.

We’ve covered Crystal Palace’s chances of signing Stewart in the recent past. With no updates on his status as of yet, we’ll be taking a look at a player closer to home today.

One of Crystal Palace’s prized starlets could leave the club on loan in January. The clubs reportedly interested include Lincoln City, MK Dons, Burton Albion, Leyton Orient and Carlisle United. But who is he?

EFL clubs interested in signing John-Kymani Gordon on loan

John-Kymani Gordon has earned himself a number of admirers in recent weeks. He’s scored two goals in two games for Crystal Palace’s U23 team in the EFL Trophy and six goals in nine games in the Premier League 2. He has yet to make a senior appearance for the Eagles, however.

As such, he is poised to move out on loan to the Football League, according to Football Insider. Lincoln, MK Dons, Burton, Leyton Orient and Carlisle are the clubs reported to be interested in acquiring his services.

He’s also very highly rated by the Palace hierarchy, as evidenced by the new contract he signed earlier in the month. Academy Director Gary Issott said on Gordon: "John has worked consistently hard for over a decade at this club, and the recognition he's had this year is a reward for that. He's really enjoying his football in the Premier League 2 and is being given invaluable experience by the first-team manager."
