Former Crystal Palace manager Alan Smith believes Victor Moses will be sold before the end of the January transfer window to "help improve the club's debts".

Smith, who had two spells as manager at Selhurst Park from 1993-95 and 2000-01, believes the club will have to sell their most valuable assets, starting with teenager Moses.

He told SkySports: "Inevitably Victor Moses will be sold. The club have to pay off their debts as quickly as possible."

He added: "The club have to sell him because the administrators need to recoup their debts and if Victor can give money back to the club by leaving then that's a good thing."

The Championship club went into administration on Tuesday which should trigger an automatic 10-point penalty, which would leave them just outside the relegation zone.

He added: "For some time this club has been on shifting sands and going into administration could be a major turning point for them."
