Crystal Palace fans react as Bakary Sako’s return to the club is confirmed
sbobet168 Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter following the announcement of their second January signing, Bakary Sako. The Eagles’ official Twitter account confirmed the deal on Sunday afternoon, with the 30-year-old returning to south London just six months after leaving the club. The Malian international made just five Championship appearances for West Brom in his short stint at the Hawthorns, failing to score a single league goal.
Palace seem to have arranged the termination of his contract with the Championship promotion hopefuls (as suggested by West Brom’s official website) in a bid to strengthen their own squad depth in attack, having used natural wingers Andros Townsend and sbobet168 Wilfried Zaha as makeshift centre-forwards frequently this season.
Sako’s arrival is certainly not the January striker signing fans were hoping for, but he is an option who the club won’t have needed to break the bank to bring in. sbobet168 The signing of the former Wolves forward makes sense in terms of adding depth, although he won’t do much to excite the fans who are desperate for a fresh face.
