Many Crystal Palace fans are reacting to the latest injury update on summer signing Nathan Ferguson, who has yet to feature for the South London side.
The Athletic journalist Dominic Fifield reported that the defender has suffered another injury setback. He tweeted: “Nathan Ferguson, whose progress has been so frustrated by a knee injury, has now had his comeback delayed further after picking up a thigh strain in training at #CPFC this week. He has been scanned, but it is not yet clear how long this latest set-back will keep him out.”
The player is only 20-years-old and already showed the great potential he has when he played in the Championship last season. The defender managed 2.4 tackles and 1.7 clearances on average per game, via WhoScored.
This has frustrated a lot of the Palace fan base, with many comparing him to the very injury prone Connor Wickham. They also hope that it means that right-back Nathaniel Clyne, who he starting for the club currently will get a contract extension. It expires in January but it looks like it is needed with Ferguson suffering another injury. If they don’t it means the only fit right-back they will have is Joel Ward.
Here is how fans reacted to the news on Ferguson:
Gutting for the lad. Surely Clyne needs a contract extension

Please don’t tell me he is another Connor Wickham in the making… :'(

How frustrating. Clyne should be given the extension regardless as he’s been excellent but all the more reason to sign him on a long term contract now. https://t.co/Vou47SHMTP
