EAGLES star Nathaniel Clyne has praised the club's academy for being able to produce good young players.

In the last couple of years, Palace have produced players capable of performing in the Premier League, such as Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tyrick Mitchell.

There are also players in the Under-23s hoping to break into the first team next season such as Tayo Adaramola and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi.

Clyne, who came through the academy at Palace, believes that the facilities built by the club has helped young players develop their games.

He told the club website: “It seems like a lot of full-backs have been breaking through the Palace Academy.

“We’ve been making a lot of good full-backs.

“You can see over there in the Academy a lot of money has been spent and it’s taken the Academy to the next level. It’s very good for young players to develop and it’s great for the Academy.

“Hopefully, we can get more and more talented young players coming through, and hopefully keeping them – not going to the let’s say ‘bigger’ clubs. Hopefully, that will help.

“I would have loved to have facilities like that. Credit to them and credit to Palace for building it.”
