Crystal Palace announced on Wednesday that young striker Victor Akinwale has signed his first professional contract with the club.
And, as to be expected, a number of Eagles supporters have been giving their thoughts to the news on social media.
Akinwale, who recently turned 17, has been with the club since the age of 12.
Where will Palace finish this season?
16th or lower
Palace are looking to add two forwards to Patrick Vieira’s first-team squad before the end of the window, but it looks like they have now tied down a potential future first-team striker in Akinwale.
Palace fans react
Palace posted the news regarding Akinwale’s deal on their official Twitter page. These Eagles fans were all delighted, with one labelling the teenager a ‘baller’.
“Things you just love to see”
“Decent centre forward prospect. Leads line well. Strong. Scores goals. Good luck to the lad. A long way to go but another significant step on the journey.”
“Well done keep banging in the goals!!!!“
