QPR and Swansea City miss out as Crystal Palace man secures switch to Championship side

Latest news on the transfer front involving Crystal Palace involves an exit.

Hull City have won the race to sign Crystal Palace winger Malcolm Ebiowei on loan. The Tigers have seen off competition from elsewhere to land the youngster on a deal until the end of the season.

Swansea City were reportedly interested in the England youth international, as per The Sun, whilst West London Sport claimed QPR wanted him as well. However, the Eagles have decided to send him to East Yorkshire.

Crystal Palace swooped to sign him last summer from Derby County and he has since made five appearances for them in all competitions so far this term, three of which have come in the Premier League. The London club will now be hoping he can get plenty of game time under his belt at the MKM Stadium to boost his development.

Hull City boss Liam Rosenior, who used to play for Fulham, has told their club website: “I am delighted that Malcolm has decided to join this football club and that we’ve beaten off a lot of competition for his signature.

“He was my main attacking target from the moment I came in and everyone has worked hard to make it happen; I can’t thank Acun and Tan enough for backing me.

“Malcolm is someone I’ve worked with before and has got undoubted ability and potential. He’s an outstanding one-v-one player, is creative, quick and can get fans off their seats. He’s got a great work ethic and is a lovely young lad who will fit into the group perfectly.

“He’s had a minor injury and is working on his rehab at Crystal Palace but is someone we believe is worth the wait. He’ll be with us soon and I can’t wait to have him at the club and get working with him.”
