Leeds United fans have high hopes for talented right-back Bryce Hosannah, who has been a regular for their under-23 side this season.
The teenager has a little way to go before he earns a first team spot, but his 2017/18 displays have made it seem a little peculiar that Crystal Palace were happy to release him.
Over the past fortnight, Palace's decision has made a little more sense.
20-year-old talent Aaron Wan Bissaka has forced his way into Palace's first team, and was superb against Manchester United on Monday night.
Wan Bissaka put in a man-of-the-match performance an as The Mail writes, 'he has made the right-back spot his own'.
There has been a fair bit of disjointing thinking at Palace over the past year, with managers Sam Allardyce, Frank de Boer and Roy Hodgson all having different approaches.
But their faith in Wan Bissaka appears justified, and he is now establishing himself as a Premier League level player.
The path for Hosannah was clearly stacked against him at Palace no matter their assessment of his talent.
The jury is still out on whether he will make it at Leeds United, but Palace's decision to release him looks more justified now, with Wan Bissaka proving he is a more advanced alternative.
