Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to an update regarding the future of Eagles left-back Patrick van Aanholt on social media.
The Athletic’s Crystal Palace correspondent Matt Woosnam revealed on Monday evening that the Dutch defender is set to leave Selhurst Park in the summer after four-and-a-half years at the club.
Should van Aanholt have been sold last summer?
The 30-year-old has made 133 appearances for Palace, with 22 of those coming this season.
He’s lost his place in recent weeks to youngster Tyrick Mitchell, and it seems as if the club will have to replace an Aanholt with a full-back who can provide competition to Mitchell.
Palace fans react
Woosnam posted the update on Twitter, and it didn’t take long for a number of Palace fans to have their say on the decision.
This is what some had to say…
“Fairs he should never play again then imo”
“Criminally underrated by many and made to be scapegoat for too much. Don’t blame him for wanting out. Defo should have tried harder to keep him.”
“Good, moving on….”
“Never really got any sense that he wanted to stay which is a shame. Done a good job for us overall. Need to thank him and start looking for a replacement to support Mitchell.”
“Think he’s been a tremendous player for us. Not sure what people expect sometimes but he’s scored some huge goals and always put the effort in. Mitchell’s emergence is exciting but will miss PVA.”
