Now as Vieira’s debut season in charge of the Eagles draws to a close, the focus will presumably be once again on the next transfer window and what the club will be looking to do in it.
However, it seems as though the south London club may have a challenge on their hands to keep hold of one of their key players before any thoughts can be put towards potentially bringing in some new faces.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, journalist and transfer insider Pete O’Rourke had this to say about the future of Palace full-back Tyrick Mitchell.
He said: “You’ve got to be imagining that some Premier League clubs will be looking at Tyrick Mitchell. I think the last couple of seasons he’s been a real consistent performer for Palace, and if he was to get an England call-up in the future, it’s just going to raise his profile even further, and bring him to the attention of the top clubs in the Premier League.”
This season has seen the defender play the full 90 minutes in all but one of Palace’s league games, racking up more minutes than any other player in Vieira’s squad, showing just how highly rated he is by the Frenchman.
In those games, the 22-year-old has earned himself an overall performance rating of 6.79, making him Palace’s fourth-highest rated player according to WhoScored.
His previous league game saw him keep the deadly attacking line of Manchester City contained during their 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park in which he made four tackles and won all four of his duels, keeping Riyad Mahrez quiet on the right-wing.
Not an easy feat but it shows why the left-back has now earned his first England call-up as his stock continues to rise in meteoric fashion.
Taking all of this into account, it’s safe to say that Vieira and many Palace fans would be distraught if Steve Parish were to make the unforgivable howler of selling Mitchell in the upcoming transfer window.
It would be sad repeat of when fellow full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sold to Manchester United back in 2019 for £50m after bursting onto the scene at the south London club.
