Palace sign Lokilo

LONDON: Crystal Palace on Wednesday confirmed the signing of 17-year-old Belgian Jason Lokilo from Anderlecht. The promising winger has been training with Palace’s under-21 and under-18 squads since the summer ahead of getting international clearance to complete his switch to Selhurst Park.

“I’m very happy to have signed with Crystal Palace,” Lokilo told the club’s website. “It’s a good club making progress. They bought Yohan Cabaye, who is a very good player. And with (Yannick) Bolasie, (Wilfried) Zaha and (Jason) Puncheon, it’s very good for wingers! I’ve trained very well and I’m looking to continue that,” he added.
