Obika loan to Palace

Jon Obika has joined Championship club Crystal Palace on a season-long loan.

The striker, 19, made two First Team appearances for us in the 2008/09 campaign, playing 90 minutes in our UEFA Cup Round of 32 second leg against Shakhtar Donetsk at the Lane having previously made his debut as a late substitute against NEC Nijmegan earlier in the competition.

Jon has since gained Football League experience during loan spells, twice with League One Yeovil Town, where he made a total of 35 appearances, scoring 11 goals, and most recently with Millwall, who he helped to promotion from the same division towards the end of last season, scoring twice in 12 substitute appearances.
