Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after the club announced that Sullay Kaikai would be leaving to join Dutch side NAC Breda on a permanent deal.
The 23-year-old has made just two appearances for the Eagles this season, twice coming off the substitutes’ bench in the Carabao Cup.
Sadly, the 23-year-old never kicked on at Selhurst Park after scoring on his debut against Newcastle back in 2014, and whilst he did happen to make his Premier League debut under Alan Pardew in 2016, a number of different managers never saw anything in Kaikai to play him regularly.
The academy graduate joins the likes of Jonny Williams, Jason Puncheon, Jordon Mutch and Alexander Sorloth in leaving south London this month, which would suggest that Palace are trying to free up funds for new arrivals.
However, with no new signings yet to arrive, fans are understandably panicking after an already thin squad becomes even thinner…

All the best, Sullay. Good luck!

Wow, not happy with that, loan is fine but permanent… let’s hope we get zero injuries for the rest for this season

Surprised we’ve sold KaiKai – but makes sense if we need to balance the books and he’s not getting a game. Good luck to him! #CPFC

@CEO4TAG, please tell me you haven’t let @SullayKaikai leave us on a perm?? He’s our product. Our boy. A decade he’s wanted to play for us! Sorloth on loan & Kaikai on a perm? Please explain your irrational thinking, mate. You’ve got the 2 deals the wrong way around!
