‘I don’t hear them, because no one at the club mentions them to me,” Hodgson told the broadcast media at Friday’s press conference ahead of the home game vs Leicester City.
‘To hear them, I would probably have to read what you are writing and the information you are getting from players’ agents to persuade you to write it. But they are not names we have discussed.”
Pressed for further details, the ex-England manager reiterated that Moses, Defoe and Toure are not among the players on their wish list next month at this moment.
He added : ”If the day ever comes when the people within the club put names like that in front of them, I’ll discuss them.
”But you are asking me if it is a fact we are discussing them, and I am saying as a fact, we’re not discussing these names”.
Moses had a nine-year spell at Palace before they were forced to sell him to Wigan Athletic in January 2010 after the club went into administration.
