Crawley: Crystal Palace duo Boateng and Kaikai join on loan

Crawley Town have signed Crystal Palace youngsters Hiram Boateng and Sullay Kaikai on initial 28-day loan deals.

Midfielder Boateng and forward Kaikai, both 18, will officially join the League One club when the loan window re-opens on Saturday.

Palace have a fantastic reputation for producing young talent," Reds boss John Gregory said.

"Hiram is excellent on the ball and strong in the tackle and Sullay is a very lively presence up front."

Boateng has made two senior appearances for the Eagles, while Kaikai is still awaiting his senior debut for the Premier League club.

"Tony [Pulis, Crystal Palace manager] has allowed them to come here to get experience and game time - and they will definitely get that with the number of matches we have coming up," Gregory added.

"I'm sure they are going to prove to be very good additions to our squad as we approach a very busy time of the season."
