Jeffrey Schlupp has given Crystal Palace fans positive news regarding his comeback from injury.

The 27-year-old has been sidelined with a hip injury picked up in the 0-0 draw with Watford in early December.

With Patrick van Aanholt injured, Schlupp made the leftback berth his own in his absence and won fans over with his performances.

His versatility has made him a favourite with Roy Hodgson who was confident in deploying the Ghanaian at left-back, midfield, or on the left wing.

Schlupp took to social media to update Eagle fans of his imminent return to full fitness, news welcomed by the Palace faithful who see the former Leicester man as a key player as they battle their way from a relegation scrap.


The news that he’s been training in Palace’s warm weather training camp in Dubai will be welcomed by fans, as well as his manager.

It’s unsure whether he’ll be available for the visit of Newcastle Unite to Selhurst Park this weekend.
