Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira has insisted that he wants the best for young winger Jesurun Rak-Sakyi.
The Ghanaian was kept at Palace during the winter window, despite League One sides Accrington Stanley and Milton Keynes expressing an interest in taking him on loan for the rest of the season.
Speaking on whether the decision to keep Rak-Sakyi at Selhurst Park for the rest of the season looked to be the correct decision, Vieira added: “He is really a special talent – he has got the potential to perform at a high level.
“But as a football club, we need to create that pathway to allow him to go to the next step.
“That may be him staying with us, or it may be him going out on loan, but it’s too early to make that decision.
“We will need to sit and try and make the best decision to allow him to keep progressing.”
Rak-Sakyi currently plays for England’s U20 team and has not yet been approached by the Ghana Football Association about playing for the West African country.
