Crystal Palace have offered professional contracts to no fewer than seven of their academy stars.

Jerry Nnamani, Jack Holland and Charlie Holness, all three second year scholars, have been offered one year deals, while Wilfried Zaha, a first year scholar, has signed a two year deal.

Meanwhile, under 16s Kyle De Silva, Alex Wynter and Jon Williams have all been offered three year deals.

‘Since I have been here the quality of young players that have emerged from this Academy has been nothing short of astounding, and this next crop are no different,’ Academy manager Dave Moss told the clubs official website.

‘All of them have flourished in their respective age groups and have been a credit to Crystal Palace Football Club.

‘The standards we set are exceptionally high and they have all developed in the manner expected of them to progress further with this football club,’ he added.
