English-born Ghanaian Jesurun Rak-Sakyi signs long-term deal at Crystal Palace

Winger Jesurun Rak-Sakyi has signed a new long term deal at English Premier League side Crystal Palace.

The English-born Ghanaian signed a five-year deal which will keep him at the South London club until June 2027.

After signing his new contract, the highly-rated winger joined English League One side Charlton Athletic on loan.

“First I thank God for these opportunities. It feels amazing to have the club’s backing and faith like this in a new deal. Making my debut last season helped me strive to push on and continue to improve, wanting to play senior football whenever the opportunity came up.” he told the club’s webiste.

“So I’m also really happy to be joining a club in League One this season, and know I can learn a lot at Charlton. I’m very grateful to both clubs,” he added.

Rak-Sakyi made his Premier League debut last season in the opener against Chelsea but spent most of his time at the developmental team. He was Crystal Palace’s top scorer in the Premier League II.

Meanwhile, chairman Steve Parish said: “Jesurun is a very talented young footballer who has displayed a tremendous attitude while progressing swiftly through the club’s ranks. We’re very confident that he has a bright future ahead of him, and this long-term contract is indicative of that.

“Going out on loan is an opportunity for Jesurun to further his development, regularly compete at a senior level and come back to Palace as a more rounded player. He knows it’s a fantastic opportunity and is committed to making the most of it.”
