Kwesi Appiah leaves Crystal Palace to join Yeovil on loan

Kwesi Appiah

Yeovil Town have signed Crystal Palace striker Kwesi Appiah on a month's loan.

Appiah spent much of his early career in non-league, but enjoyed a short spell under Glovers boss Gary Johnson when he was in charge at Peterborough.

The 22-year-old was snapped up by Championship Palace in January 2012 and has since made one start and eight substitute appearances.

The forward was loaned out to Aldershot Town in September and featured twice off the bench.

"He's quick and he's got a good first touch," Johnson told BBC Somerset.

"He's exactly what I need within my squad so we feel, by bringing him in, we've improved.

"He'll be put in the squad but it's up to him to earn his place in the squad."
