Former Crystal Palace striker Marcus Bent is confident Odsonne Edouard can progress further at his old club.
Edouard joined Palace from Celtic on deadline day in a £14m deal after a prolific spell in Glasgow.
In 179 appearances for the Scottish giants, the French forward scored an impressive 86 goals, making it no surprise his new side were willing to take a punt on him and offer him a £70,000-a-week deal.
Ultimately, for Bent, it is a good move for Edouard and he is now expecting the 23-year-old to take his game to the next level.
Speaking exclusively to FFC about his move to Selhurst Park, the ex-Palace star said:
“I know Palace haven’t got the money and the finances that, you know, the big teams have. But bringing him in – and he’s done well at Celtic – I think it will be good bringing him in for him to progress and score some goals for Palace.”
With the likes of Marc Guehi and Conor Gallagher also joining the club, you would have to say that it was a positive transfer window for Palace.
The Eagles were able to strengthen in defence, midfield and attack, so Patrick Vieira can be pleased with his side’s business.
