Crystal Palace: Fans react to Matt Woosnam’s update on academy prospect

Crystal Palace: Fans react to Matt Woosnam’s update on academy prospect - Crystal Palace

Recent news has been circulating this week around a youth player at Crystal Palace, and a lot of fans are reacting following an update from journalist Matt Woosnam.

The news surrounds youth player Jaden Raymond, with recent reports from O Jogo suggesting that Portuguese side Vitória Guimarães have agreed a a three-year contract with the central midfielder. However, Woosnam, who writes for the Athletic, has provided a positive update as he writes that the club remain hopeful of keeping Raymond.

Is it crucial Palace keep hold of their youth?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Eagles have the second oldest squad on average in the league, per 101 Great Goals, so looking towards their youth is something the club should be doing. Palace do have a strong history when it comes to developing young players, with the likes of Wilfried Zaha, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Moses and Nathaniel Clyne all previously coming through their academy.

With the club recently being given the green light to upgrade their facilities, they will hopefully be able to bring more youth players into the senior side in the future, which would help save money, and attract more potential stars to the club, via Crystal Palace.

Raymond is highly rated, and with Palace losing Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United last summer, fans are rightfully worried a similar situation will happen here where the potential star wants to leave.

Palace fans, what are your thoughts on the academy? Comment below!
