Palace's Yeates Move on Hold

Palace's Yeates Move on Hold

Colchester United winger Mark Yeates' reported move to Crystal Palace has stalled after Yeates failed a medical at Selhurst Park.

Yeates, 23, is still suffering from a long-term shoulder injury which he picked up in early February. The former Tottenham man has been subject of intense speculation linking him with a transfer to Palace, while Watford and Nottingham Forest have also been mentioned.

Eagles boss Neil Warnock told the Croyden Advertiser: 'We've spoken to Mark about a move - but he has a major problem with his shoulder.

'It's something that needs to be sorted out - but we won't know now for another three to four weeks.'

So will Yeates be leaving? We want to know YOUR thoughts?

I don't think we would miss him too much. He shot when he should have passed and passed when he should have shot in his last few games before getting injured. Was a little selfish too and I think the pressure got to him after the press geared us up as a one man team after he scored a few free-kicks.

Well he went on a real good run of form early in the season but after missing a penalty at Ipswich his form dipped. Still think he would be very good in League One, would be sad to see him go.
