Yeovil Town to complete loan deal for Crystal Palace striker Kwesi Appiah

Posted On Friday, 25th January 2013

Kwesi Appiah will join Yeovil on Monday

Crystal Palace youngster Kwesi Appiah is expected to become Yeovil Town’s latest arrival on Monday when he signs a loan deal until the end of the season.

The talented striker has been training with the Glovers this week as manager Gary Johnson casts his eye over a player he briefly worked with at Peterborough United.

Appiah joined the Eagles during last January’s transfer window as the npower Championship outfit fought off competition to sign the forward who blasted 35 goals in 33 appearances for non-League Margate.

The 22-year-old spent a month on loan at Aldershot earlier this season and has started once for Palace in the Capital One Cup, as well as coming off the substitutes’ bench on a handful of occasions.

Yeovil’s lack of a game this weekend and Johnson’s eagerness to ensure Appiah is at Huish Park until the end of the campaign means a deal for the former Weymouth and Kettering loanee will not go through until the start of the week.

Attacker Keanu Marsh-Brown will have left the club by then, with his exit anticipated to be confirmed by today at the latest.

Boss Johnson said: “We have got Kwesi Appiah with us from Crystal Palace at the moment, training with us with a view to a loan. I had him for a very short time at Peterborough and he ended up going to Margate, scoring a lot of goals.

“Palace then took him, paying a lot of money for him I believe. He’s that other striker we’re looking for in that Paddy Madden mould, where he is quick and on the shoulder which is what I felt we have needed for our squad. It gives us good competition for all positions.

“He has got that raw pace, he has got that good touch and I do know him so I know what he will bring personality-wise to the squad.

“He has had a couple of games for Palace and he came off the bench against Stoke City recently. At the moment we are leaving it for a few days so if we do take him for 93 days – which we have agreed with Palace – we will then have him for the rest of the season.

“If we signed him today he would miss the last couple of games. If we signed him on Monday the whole 93 days would take him until the end of the season.”

The Glovers have to wait until Tuesday before their next outing, with MK Dons the visitors in League One. Johnson said the encounter with Karl Robinson’s men started an important sequence of clashes.

“They’re a great side with their Championship-style football,” he said. “They’re the nearly-men at the moment where in the last few years they have nearly got there. I think they believe this is a big year for them and they are in the place where everyone outside the top six wants.

“When we get around to these home games they are going to be good ones. They’re big games now against MK Dons, Brentford, Oldham and Preston.

“We have got to be really excited as a club that we have got some really big games that might just get everything back.”
