Crystal Palace youngster Keshi Anderson has joined Doncaster Rovers on loan.
Crystal Palace youngster Keshi Anderson has told Doncaster Rovers' official website that he decided to move to the Keepmoat Stadium on the advice of Alan Pardew.
Anderson has revealed that Pardew called him into his office as soon as he heard of Doncaster's interest in him, to tell him to make sure he took up the League One side's offer.
"The main reason I’m here is because Alan Pardew has called me in to his office and he personally thinks I should come here,” Anderson said.
“As I can’t play Under 21’s football next year, I need league football so the aim has been to do what I do, maybe score again on Saturday and hopefully I can go from there.
“I still think I can get better and then, who knows, he might come and watch?”
Anderson will be grateful that he took his manager's advice, too, having made a bright start to life at the Keepmoat Stadium.
The 20-year-old scored in his latest outing for Doncaster, netting with an excellent finish against Swindon Town in a 2-2 draw.
It was his first senior goal in just his second appearance in the Football League, and the strike has helped him to continue enhancing his burgeoning reputation.
Anderson joined Palace last season after impressing for Barton Rovers, and he has dazzled with his performances for their under-21's, where he has been a frequent scorer.
There are high hopes for his future at Selhurst Park, due to this good form, and Anderson will be hoping to continue to bang in the goals for the remainder of his loan spell to further confirm his potential.
