Crystal Palace: Fans react to Jean-Philippe Mateta update

Crystal Palace: Fans react to Jean-Philippe Mateta update -Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace will cut Jean-Philippe Mateta’s Selhurst Park loan spell short in the New Year, according to The Sun.

And, as to be expected, a number of Palace fans have been giving their thoughts to the transfer news on social media.

The Eagles brought in the Frenchman back in January from Mainz on an 18-month loan deal with an option to buy.

How well do you remember these Palace signings? First up, where did Joachim Andersen arrive from this summer?

However, things haven’t worked out under both Roy Hodgson and Patrick Vieira, with the 24-year-old making just 10 appearances for the club, only two of which have come this season.

Alan Nixon of The Sun shared a story at the weekend, suggesting Vieira will clear a decision for Mateta to leave the club in the next window.

Doing so would give Vieira space to land an extra forward in the New Year, while also getting Mateta’s salary off Palace’s books.

Happy for Mateta to return to Mainz in January?

Yes, get him out!

Yes, get him out!

No, keep him!

No, keep him!
