Crystal Palace: Fans react to Kyle Bartley links - Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace and Newcastle United are interested in signing West Brom defender Kyle Bartley, according to The Telegraph’s Mike McGrath.

As to be expected, a number of Eagles fans have been sharing their thoughts to the news on social media.

According to McGrath, Bartley is an option for both Palace and Newcastle. The 30-year-old has a year left on his contract and could be available for around £3m.

Bartley was a regular under both Slaven Bilic and Sam Allardyce last season, making 31 appearances in all competitions for the Baggies. He has turned out 105 times for his current employers and seems to be of interest to Patrick Vieira, who brought in Michael Olise as his first Selhurst Park signing on Thursday.

The 30-year-old has twice been relegated from the Premier League, having also suffered the drop with Swansea in 2018, while he won just 0.9 tackles per game last season, which would put him joint-14th in Crystal Palace’s squad by comparison.

Here is what these Palace supporters had to say in reply to the links, with one labelling them as ‘strange’.

“Back to reality”

“No way”

“This is true. Quite a strange one. Heard we in discussions with West Brom for Kyle Bartley, around £3 million. He’s a back-up option for us at this stage.”

“No more older players, we need younger”

“No thank you”

“Not for me – a great Championship defender but not a Prem one”
