Palace do have a strong history when it comes to developing young players, with the likes of Wilfried Zaha, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Moses and Nathaniel Clyne all previously coming through their academy.
With the club recently being given the green light to upgrade their facilities, they will hopefully be able to bring more youth players into the senior side in the future, which would help save money, and attract more potential stars to the club, via Crystal Palace.
However senior football will always be a better education for young stars and League Two will be a good place for Kirby to learn the ropes and start playing consistently, which is what he needs at the age of 20. Hopefully he can prove why he can feature for Palace in the future.
Here is what Crystal Palace fans said following the news:
“Can’t help but feel these lads are better than this. Ben White and Harvey Barnes both got Championship loans and were excellent, we need to be doing the same”
“Show them your star quality @nyakirb and come back soon”
“All the best lads”
“Best of luck to them both”
“He’s only a kid but he’s one that most Palace fans have high hopes for. He’ll do well for Tranmere.”
“I’d be interested to hear how Kirby gets on with you.”
“Feel like Kirby deserves better than this”
