Scramble over Kwesi Appiah in UK

Football League clubs have been asking about the availability of the forward who is just returning from a successful loan at Cambridge United

Crystal Palace striker Kwesi Appiah has become a key target for several Football League clubs.

Appiah, who was on loan at Cambridge United in the Conference Premier and helped them to the current play-off positions, could be farmed out again in order to gain regular experience.

“We’re looking potentially at getting Kwesi Appiah some more experience,” Palace Academy Director Gary Issott told the Advertiser.

“Kwesi returned from Cambridge United and there is some interest in him from the Football League particularly.”

Issott added: “We have got a number of players out at the moment – I think the plan is to get around ten players out on loan in this January window.

“Kyle De Silva looks set for Northampton Town, then both goalkeepers Ross Fitzsimons and David Gregory, plus Alex Wynter and Derek Tieku, have all gone out on loan.

“Alex has gone to Sutton United, Derek has gone to Hayes & Yeading, while Luke Croll has also gone to Harrow Borough.”
