Freddie Ladapo to Crystal Palace update

Freddie Ladapo is to feature on loan again for Crystal Palace against Leeds United.

Freddie Ladapo is set to feature in a second trial game for Crystal Palace, HITC Sport understands.

The non-league striker scored a hat-trick for the Eagles' under-21 side last Monday night as they demolished Watford 5-0.

Ladapo was at the end of a week long trial from Margate, and the former Colchester United forward had hoped this would be enough to earn him a permanent deal.

Manager Alan Pardew wants to have the final say, and has requested Ladapo take part in another friendly match on Tuesday against Leeds United.

Pardew was not at the game against Watford to watch Ladapo first hand, because he was in attendance at the King Power Stadium to see Leicester City beat Newcastle, ahead of their match against the Foxes this past weekend.

Ladapo was back featuring for Margate this weekend, scoring in their 2-1 defeat to Hayes and Yeading.

Since his hat-trick, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the situation that a number of interested Championship clubs have expressed interest in the 23-year-old striker.
