Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been giving their views on an update regarding young midfielder Jesurun Rak-Sakyi.
According to the Daily Mail, the 18-year-old looks set to move to Germany and join either Borussia Monchengladbach or Schalke after turning down a two-year professional contract at Selhurst Park.
Celtic, Everton and West Ham also hold a strong interest in Rak-Sakyi, however, it seems as if he is likely to become the latest young Englishman to move to the Bundesliga.
Should Palace get rid of Hodgson this summer?
Rak-Sakyi best Palace youngster since Wan-Bissaka?
Palace will reportedly be in line to receive just £150,000 in training compensation for Rak-Sakyi, who has scored seven goals and registered three assists in his last eight fixtures for Palace’s U18 and U23 sides.
The Daily Mail claim that Rak-Sakyi is regarded as one of the brightest talents to emerge from Palace’s academy since Aaron Wan-Bissaka, so it appears as if it could be a big loss for the Eagles.
The news was shared on Twitter by @cpfc_xtra on Tuesday afternoon.
