Three games, no wins: £2m Hodgson signing is struggling on loan from Crystal Palace - Our View

Ranking Every Premier League Team's Youngest Player This Season

One player who some Crystal Palace supporters might’ve forgotten about is Jaroslaw Jach.

The Poland international was signed by Roy Hodgson for £2 million in January 2018.

However, he has only made one first-team appearances for the Eagles in that time, which came earlier this season against Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup.

Shortly after that game, Jach completed a season-long loan move to Eredivisie side Fortuna Sittard, where things haven’t gone too well.

The 26-year-old has only made three appearances for the Dutch outfit so far, and is yet to taste victory with his new team.

Jach has faced Ajax, Vitesse and PEC Zwolle, losing twice and drawing once.

It is a mystery as to what Crystal Palace’s plan for the Bielawa-born defender is. He is rarely spoken about in press conferences, while he isn’t a young prospect in need of game-time.

If he was 20, 21 or 22, you could excuse the Eagles for sending him on four loan spells in just under three years.

Jach has spent time with Çaykur Rizespor, Sheriff Tiraspol, Raków Częstochowa and now Fortuna Sittard since signing for the south Londoners.

With the likes of Gary Cahill, Scott Dann, Mamadou Sakho, Cheikhou Kouyate, James Tomkins and Martin Kelly at Selhurst Park, it seems unlikely that Hodgson will ever hand Jach first-team minutes.
