Crystal Palace striker Kwesi Appiah tweets promising update after horror knee injury

The Ghanaian international suffered a serious knee injury in June.

Crystal Palace striker Kwesi Appiah would have been hoping for a breakthrough at the club this season.

The Ghanaian forward, who played at the African Cup of Nations earlier in the year, spent time on loan at Reading last season and scored plenty of goals during a loan spell at Cambridge United.

His efforts were rewarded with a new deal at Palace.

Unfortunately he has been unable to make the impact he would have wanted at Selhurst Park this term.

Appiah has been out of action since June after suffering a serious knee injury. The 24-year-old suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury whilst training with the Ghana national team that looked like ruling him out of action for the rest of the year.

However, he has recently stepped up his recovery and sent out this tweet today regarding his injury recuperation:

Appiah is a talent that Palace clearly have some belief in with the contract they gave him last season.

If he can return from his injury issues in good time then he might just get a chance to make an impact under Alan Pardew at Palace this term.
