Crystal Palace: Fans react to footage of January signing Scott Banks - Crystal Palace

Many Crystal Palace fans are reacting to footage which shows their only permanent January signing Scott Banks who is currently on loan at Alloa Athletic.

The 18-year-old Scottish midfielder was bought by Palace from Dundee United for £270k and was immediately loaned out to Alloa Athletic, who currently play in the Scottish second division per Transfermarkt. Indeed, he has played four times since he went on loan and assisted once.

With that in mind, if the 18-year-old can perform well whilst on loan, he could potentially impose himself on first-team proceedings.
