Crystal Palace fans react as club agree Victor Camarasa deal with Real Betis

According to Sevilla ABC, Crystal Palace have come to an agreement to sign Real Betis midfielder Victor Camarasa, and Eagles fans have been quick to react to the news on Twitter.

Marca suggested earlier this week that the south London outit would have to pay between €12m-€15m (£11m-£13.7m) if they wanted to get the 25-year-old, but now Sevilla ABC report that they will pay €1.5m (£1.4m) to loan him for the season, with an obligation to buy him for €13.5m (£12.4m) if they remain in the Premier League.

It has to be seen as a genius deal given how impressive the Spaniard was during a loan spell with Cardiff City last term, where he provided five goals and four assists in a struggling side that ultimately suffered relegation to the Championship.

Of course, not paying out for the 6 foot player now means that they have more money to spend on other areas of the pitch, such as at right-back and striker where they have already seen £25m and £14m bids for Reece James and Fedor Chalov respectively rejected as the deadline draws closer.

Eagles supporters have taken to social media to give their thoughts on the reported deal that sporting director Dougie Freedman, who some fans have become frustrated with this summer because of the lack of business, has agreed with Betis.

While one called it “a Dougie masterclass”, another labelled it as “a big signing for us”.
