The centre-forward has made 30 appearances for the club’s youth sides since the beginning of the 2020/21 campaign, scoring 10 times and registering three assists.

He has now followed in the footsteps of youngsters such as David Omilabu and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi in penning a first Selhurst Park deal.

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.
