Crystal Palace announce new manager

Just yesterday, Crystal Palace announced former Arsenal legend and ex-Nice manager, Patrick Vieira, as their new boss.

The London club had been without a permanent boss since the end of the season, when they announced that Roy Hodgson would be stepping down after nearly four years of service, where he guided Palace into midtable with increasing regularity.

With Vieira now in place, it appears as though summer business can begin at Palace, who let several key players leave this summer upon their contract expiry.

Olise the first signing of the Summer

According to the Athletic. the Eagles are set to make Michael Olise their first summer signing. The 19-year-old has impressed during his time at Reading last season, scoring seven times in 46 Championship appearances.

He would add to an impressive cadre of attacking options at Palace, which include the likes of Wilfried Zaha and Eberechi Eze, both of whom were at times unplayable last campaign.

As for the fee, it is reported that Olise had an 8 million pound release clause in his contract, which Palace have activated.

At 19, he is both one for now and for the next decade. Palace may have another gem on their hands.
