Jairo Riedewald is reportedly on his way to Bundesliga newcomers Paderborn after flopping in the Premier League at Crystal Palace.
Jairo Riedewald’s nightmare spell at Crystal Palace could be coming to an end, with Kicker claiming that he is a target for Bundesliga newcomers Paderborn.
Palace looked to have pulled off an almighty coup when they signed a young Dutch international from Ajax in the summer of 2017 for a fee of £7.9 million, as reported by the Guardian.
Riedewald arrived at Selhurst Park alongside his former Ajax coach Frank de Boer but, once the manager was sacked after just four win-less games in charge, the versatile defender slipped rapidly out of favour.
The 22-year-old did not make a single Premier League appearance under Roy Hodgson last season and, despite being constantly linked with a move away, he remains a Palace player. But that could still change before today’s transfer deadline.
Kicker claims that Paderborn are looking to sign another forgotten man from Britain after landing Abdelhamid Sabiri from Huddersfield Town.
The North-Rhine Westphalia club are back in the Bundesliga after four years bouncing around the second and third tier and Riedewald has the potential to be a superb addition to Steffen Baumgart’s squad, and not just for his ability to play at centre-half, full-back and in defensive midfield.
