The Selhurst Park dressing room

Crystal Palace have completed their transfer window activity and the amended 25-man squad has been revealed.

The Ins and Outs of The Transfer Window

In came Jeffery Schlupp, Patrick van Aanholt, Luka Milivojevic and Mamadou Sakho (loan).

Out went Jordan Mutch (loan to Reading).

It seems now that there is no possibility of an free agent as 25 senior players have been named and a senior player can’t be removed from the squad once he has been named in it.

The final 25 players and their squad numbers are.

  • Jonathan Benteke and Sully Kaikai are 21 years of age as of 1st January 2017 and therefore do not require to be given a squad place.
  • Papa Souare and Connor Wickham are long term injured and are not expected to play again this season. I do not expected them to be included in the squad on this basis.

The 25-man squad is made up of:

  • 3 Goalkeepers.
  • 9 Defenders (Schlupp is listed as a defender though I think he’ll play more as a winger).
  • 10 Midfielders (including wingers).
  • 3 Attackers.

The above information has Now been confirmed by the club.
