Crystal Palace look all set to announce the signing of Polish central defender Jaroslaw Jach today, following the agreement of personal terms over the weekend.
Roy Hodgson used part of his post-match press conference against Arsenal to fill reporters in on Jaroslaw Jach and Erdal Rakip who are all set to be announced as Palace players later today.
It’s always dangerous to take what you see of a footballer on a YouTube compilation as proof of their overall technical abilities but I’m sure you’ll agree that this footage of Swedish midfielder Erdal Rakip looks ridiculously impressive.
Palace are expected to announce the loan signing of 21-year-old Swedish midfielder Erdal Rakip today, despite reports across Europe confirming that the Malmo star is all set to sign as long-term permanent deal with Portugese giants Benfica at the same time.
Palace boss Roy Hodgson has dismissed any chance of Wilfried Zaha or Christian Benteke leaving Crystal Palace this January after being asked for what felt like the 5,653rd time by the press following our defeat to Arsenal.
There’s no shame in admitting you know very little about Palace’s new central defensive signing Jaroslaw Jach but according to a man who has watched a lot of him in the last few years, we’ve got ourselves quite a talented defender.
Wilfried Zaha didn’t have his most enjoyable afternoon of the season against Arsenal at The Emirates Stadium on Saturday, watching on in frustration as Palace’s defenders shipped four goals in the opening 25 minutes of the contest before showing his aggravation with the referee later in the game after not being awarded a free-kick when he felt he’d been fouled.
Whilst I often feel compelled to shy away from requests for a minute of applause to mark the passing of individual football fans, I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that the case mentioned in the tweet just below is worthy of everyone’s attention.
This afternoon, Crystal Palace have officially announced the loan signing of 21-year-old Swedish midfielder Erdal Rakip until the end of the season, following on from his permanent move to Benfica.
