However, he has now provided fans with an update on his recovery and his plans for the short-term.
What Ferguson had to say about his injury
Speaking via London News Online, Ferguson said: “Short-term, I want to get myself out of this injury and back to where I was, or even better. Then, hopefully, I can then implement myself into the team and help to develop other players while I’m also working hard myself.”
This could be a great boost for Crystal Palace
He is only 19 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.
Palace currently have Joel Ward in that position, who is 30, and also brought Nathaniel Clyne back on a free transfer. However Clyne’s deal expires in January, so it would be great for the club for Ferguson to return sooner rather than later.
Speaking last season about the player, Lee Hendrie said: “You look at the best full-backs in the league, in the Premier League even, he’s a younger Kyle Walker for me. He’s got so much potential to go forward, he’s quick, he’s good on the ball, and he can get forward and shoot and score goals.”
With Ferguson’s age and potential, it definitely looks like he was signed as a player for the future at the club, and with the current success of fellow summer signing Eberechi Eze, supporters will be hoping the defender follows suit when he is fit to play.
In other Palace news, one player at the club is being rewarded for his good performances lately. Have a read how here!
