thumbnail Hello,

The coach of the in-form striker says he will not cut short his loan deal with Cambridge United, despite interest from parent club Crystal Palace

The head coach of Cambridge United Richard Money has stated that in-form striker Kwesi Appiah, who is on loan at the club, will not go back to Crystal Palace soon.

Cambridge United supporters are harbouring fears that the forward will be making a hasty return to his parent club.

English Premier League strugglers Palace are searching for a new manager after Ian Holloway left the Selhurst Park outfit last Wednesday by mutual consent after a string of poor results which has seen them deeply rooted at the bottom of the log.

“We have him until the middle of November and they can’t make a change to their Premier League squad until January,” Money said. “When the time comes we’ll try to secure the 93-day part of the loan, and then whether we’d have him after January is open to conjecture in any case.”

He added: “So it is a concern on the horizon, but it’s a long way off.”

The 23-year-old who was born in Thamesmead to a Ghanaian father and a British mother is yet to be capped by either Ghana or England at any level. Appiah has bagged five goals in nine appearances since arriving at United on loan last month.
