Crystal Palace: Fans react to Gary Cahill update

Crystal Palace: Fans react to Gary Cahill update - Crystal Palace

Gary Cahill has rejected a new contract from Crystal Palace, according to The Sun’s Tom Barclay.

The news was shared on Twitter, which had a number of Eagles supporters giving their thoughts to the update.

Cahill was one of 11 senior Palace players at the beginning of the month who became a free agent after his previous contract at Selhurst Park expired.

Will Cahill be a big loss?

Yes, need his experience!

The 35-year-old made the move to Selhurst Park back in 2019 on a free transfer after leaving Chelsea and spent two seasons with the club, making 47 appearances.

He scored his only goal for the club in a 2-1 win over Newcastle United last season, and it now seems as if he won’t be returning under Patrick Vieira.

The centre-back’s previous Palace contract was worth £65,000-a-week, and according to Barclay, Cahill has turned down a new deal as his wage demands were too high.

Palace fans react

Barclay’s post on Cahill on Thursday morning had these Palace fans talking, with one describing the situation as ‘weird’.


“Disappointing if true. Whilst it’s not up for debate that he is “seasoned” the guy is a proven winner and we still that experience in the squad after losing the likes of Dann and Sakho. That said I’m all for reducing the inflated wage bill.”

“I would have loved Cahill to stay 1 more season but if he’s asking for too much money I rate Parish for not budging. I would rather see the Club spend the wages on a younger centre half.”

“Weird honestly didn’t see him leaving but oh well. Rather spend the money on a young CB”

“Big loss”

“You can go”
