Appiah eyes Cambridge return

The Ghanaian striker is eyeing a comeback to Cambridge in January after an impressive three-month loan spell

English-born Ghanaian Kwesi Appiah is not ruling out a return to Cambridge United in January.

The Crystal Palace forward has made a huge impact at the conference league leaders scoring 10 goals in 18 appearances.

Appiah netted a double in the 3-0 victory over Macclesfield on Tuesday night, which was his last home game, but he could still play one more time at St Albans in the FA Trophy on Saturday before his deal expires on Monday.

United head coach Richard Money has said the club will do everything they can to try to bring the attacker back following a succession of stellar displays.

“He (Money) brought me in for a reason and hopefully I’ve paid him back,” said Appiah to Cambridge News.

“We’re still sitting top of the league, which was the aim when I came here, so I’m grateful for that and I suppose they are too.

“You never know what can happen in January, so we’ll have to wait and see. Saturday’s another big game for us and a good chance to proceed into the next round, so we’ll see what happens.”

He added: “It’s been brilliant. Three months I’ve spent here and I’ve played every game, so I’m grateful for that and hopefully I’ve paid back the team.

“January’s not too far away, so we’ll just have to wait and see.”

Appiah will return to Palace after Saturday’s match, with the Eagles enjoying an upturn in fortunes in the Barclays Premier League following the arrival of new manager Tony Pulis.
