Crystal Palace fans are disappointed as Bakary Sako nears a return to the club

Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment at the club’s transfer activity, as after 25 days and not a single sign of a new forward arriving, the recruitment team at Selhurst Park have decided to bring Bakary Sako back to Selhurst Park, as reported by The Guardian’s Dominic Fifield.

It was only back in the summer that the Eagles had the Malian international on their books before his contract expired, and after deciding not to renew it they have now decided they want the current West Brom attacker back.

Makes sense, that.

Which player with “no potential” has just been named Crystal Palace’s worst ever January signing? Find out in the video below…

The 30-year-old has made just five appearances in the Championship for the Baggies this season, as per Transfermarkt, including only two starts as he again struggles for fitness. According to Dominic Fifield, Sako is hoping to have his contract with the Midlands-based club terminated with a view to rejoining the Eagles on a six-month deal to ease their lack of depth in attack.

Palace fans had hoped to see a new face arrive who would be a sure-fire answer to their lack of goals, as only Jordan Ayew has found the back of the net in the league this season for the South Londoners out of himself, Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham – even then, the Ghanaian has just one top flight goal to his name.

Naturally, Palace fans are extremely disappointed with the move…
