Crystal Palace to make Jean-Philippe Mateta’s move from Mainz permanent

Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato reports that Premier League side Crystal Palace are set to make French striker Jean-Philippe Mateta’s loan move from Mainz permanent.

Although the former Lyon did not previously seem set to stay at the club with the club and Patrick Vieira unsatisfied with his performances, an unexpected u-turn means that the 24-year-old will now remain in London.

The permanent option intially agreed with Mainz was €15m, however the two clubs are expected to bring that down to around €10m. The striker had earlier been linked to a move to the struggling Saint-Étienne.
