Many Crystal Palace fans are reacting to the news that emerging academy prospect Brandon Pierrick is heading out on loan for the rest of the season.
The South London side announced on Twitter that the attacker has temporarily joined Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock. The 19 year-old is definitely one to keep an eye out for as he featured three times for the Palace first team, with two of these coming in the Premier League (Transfermarkt), even if just brief substitute appearances.
He has had a solid campaign for the U23 side this season, picking up three goals and one assist in twelve showings.
Pierrick is still very young so has plenty of time to make himself into a Premier League player, and a lot of the Palace faithful are excited to see how he gets on in Scotland. One fan called the update ‘brilliant’.
Indeed, this loan feels like a huge moment in Pierrick’s career – if he cements his place in the SPFL side whilst on loan and shows that he has the quality, then we could see him emerge into a consistent squad player for the first team at Palace next season.
Here is how Palace fans reacted to the news:
“Excellent work by the club getting so many suitable loans. Got to hope it really pushes them on. Good luck Brandon”
“Much better than going to league 2”
“Brilliant move for Brandon hope it goes well and he gets some goals”
“The lad is brilliant”
“Great move for him, hopefully he comes back fighting for a first team spot”
“Yet another fantastic move for him. If we won’t consider him for the first team the Scottish Premiership is one of the best places he can be instead”
