How is this Crystal Palace player finding life out on loan?

Crystal Palace made the decision to loan Scott Banks out to Bradford City over the summer.

The attacking midfielder was given the green light to join the League Two club on a season-long loan to get more experience under his belt.

Banks, 20, has made seven appearances so far for Mark Hughes’ side in all competitions so has been getting plenty of game time.

‘Very different’...

He has opened up about life is going so far at Valley Parade, as per a report by the Telegraph and Argus:

“I’m enjoying the challenge. There’s a lot of different formations and tactics and it’s very different from academy football.

“It’s frustrating at times when some teams have sussed us out. But every game you learn something new and it’s all hopefully going into my life experience and will improve me as a player.

“I want to keep performing well and hopefully build myself a bit of a reputation.”

Crystal Palace swooped to sign Banks back in 2020 after he rose up through the youth ranks at Dundee United.

He has played twice for the Eagles’ senior team since his switch to London and has also been loaned out to Alloa Athletic and Dunfermline Athletic over recent years.

The Scotland youth international was involved with Patrick Viera’s side over pre-season ahead of this campaign but was allowed to depart when Bradford came calling.
