Crystal Palace: Fans react to reported James McCarthy fee

Crystal Palace: Fans react to reported James McCarthy fee

Palace fans have responded to news that James McCarthy has joined the club for a fee of just £3m, according to David Ornstein.

The journalist tweeted on Tuesday night that the central midfielder was travelling to London after the two clubs agreed a transfer fee ahead of his now completed move.

David Ornstein’s report differs from that of the Daily Mail, which suggested that Palace would sign the midfielder for £8m, rather than £3m.

The Irish midfielder has struggled for game time over the past three seasons after receiving a number of injuries. He suffered a double leg fracture in January 2018 but has been fit since October last year. Since the 2014/15 season, the midfielder has had eight separate injuries which have kept him out for a considerable amount of games, according to Transfermarkt.

Upon his return, he was not favoured by Marco Silva, and only appeared once in the league in the last campaign.

The 28-year-old brings barrels of experience, having played 223 games in the Premier League, though it must be said that he has only played 17 league games in the past three seasons (Transfermarkt).

Despite this, there has been a pretty positive response from Palace fans, but mostly about the alleged fee. One fan even said that he was “buzzing” and that it was “bargain in today’s market”. Some fans were slightly less pleased, with one calling it a Championship signing.

Here are some of the responses below…
