Crystal Palace’s Will Donkin wanted by two Chinese clubs

One of Crystal Palace’s highly-regarded teenagers is wanted by a couple of clubs abroad.

According to HITC Sport, Will Donkin is understood to have interested both Hebei CFFC and Shenzhen in the Chinese Super League.

With the transfer window yet to close in Asia, there is a real possibility that the two clubs could look to take him away from England.


The 18-year-old is already a full international for Chinese Taipei, having broken into the national side at the age of 16, making him well known in Asian football.

Donkin is yet to make his first-team debut for Crystal Palace, however, officials at Selhurst Park are believed to hold the teenager in high regard.

He joined the south London outfit from Chelsea in 2017 and is believed to have an exciting future ahead of him.

The Verdict:

Donkin is thought to be highly-regarded at Crystal Palace and is considered to be an exciting prospect at Selhurst Park.

As mentioned, he is yet to make his first-team debut and whether Roy Hodgson hands it to him in the near future does remain to be seen.

However, with both Hebei CFFC and Shenzhen both thought to be keen on the teenager, an offer for him could be difficult for Palace to turn down.
