Songo'o out on loan to Palace

Songo'o out on loan to Palace

Pompey winger Franck Songo'o has joined Palace on loan - initially for a month, but this could be for longer. He is also straight into their squad that play tonight.

To be honest I was fairly impressed with the fella during pre season - but that is a different level - and had hoped this would give him a bit of a chance this season, but that has not been the case. I had certainly expected him to play some part in the league cup, but again he has not.

Although he still has a chance it probably will be hard for him to maintain a long-term future with Pompey, but he is only 20. He does need first team football though, so getting this with Palace will give him a chance and if he can impress this will not go unnoticed at Pompey.

It is certainly a move that will be in the best interests of all concerned, that much is for sure.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

i thought he impressed from pre-season, but I have relations from preston and they were critical about him when he was at preston. but like you sed, he is only 20!

he has come on leaps and bounds - and as he is only 20, he could still play a big part in the future ofthe club. is he going to the ACoN? if not, that could be his chance...

his dad was the cameroon keeper in the 90 world cup. i think he was born in cameroon but raised in france - either way i know he has played for france at some level, u21 i believe... as ive said before tho, you dont get picked up by barcelona - as he was - if you are a mug do you. i watched 20-25 minutes of the palace game yesterday and he looked lively again.

Carpet - he was born in Cameroon but eligible to play for France as he represented them at under-19 level when at Barcelona I think. Made his debut for Palace against Watford last night and nearly scored !! - I hope this moved (although only a month initially) doesn't mean we have seen the end of Franck as I too think he has a bright future at Pompey

He showed some nice touches last night as well. But Watford appear to be steamrollering the Championship at the mo.

yep i agree mate, like i said in the 20-25 mins or so that i watched he looked good, so in theory the more he plays the better he should get... i still reckon he is going to be a very good player so do hope that we keep hold of him and he does get a chance.
