Crystal Palace have completed the signing of centre-back Jake O’Brien from Cork City following a successful loan spell.
And, as to be expected, a number of Palace fans were quick to give their thoughts to the confirmed news on social media.
How many more signings do Palace need this summer?
The 20-year-old made the move to Selhurst Park from the Irish side on loan earlier this year, with the Eagles having the option to make it permanent over the summer.
Palace have now exercised that clause, with the defender joining the club for an undisclosed fee.
O’Brien has made a total of 12 appearances for Palace’s Under-23 side and actually scored in the club’s first game of the new season on Monday evening.
Palace fans react
Cork City confirmed O’Brien’s transfer on their official Twitter page on Monday afternoon.
This is what these Palace fans had to say, with one labelling the youngster as a ‘great prospect’.
“Welcome to Palace, Jake.”
“Exactly what we’re crying out for.”
“Looks like a great prospect, hope you guys got a decent deal out of it”
“Well… if this doesn’t fill my heart with joy .. O’Brien …. Cork City … Palace …. “
