It’s been difficult for Kwesi Appiah to get a breakthrough at Crystal Palace but the forward is hoping that his latest loan away from Selhurst Park can help him catch Tony Pulis’ eye.

Since signing for Crystal Palace, under then boss Dougie Freedman, in 2012 from Margate he’s been sent out on loan five times including this latest spell with AFC Wimbledon making only 10 first-team appearances.

Joining Wimbledon was the best option for him and he believes that Neal Ardley is giving him the confidence to express himself.

Performing well at Kingsmeadow is central to his future, if he does well that should earn him a new contract at Selhurst Park but if he doesn’t then he will probably be released and the 23-year-old will then be looking for a new club.

Appiah told the News Shopper: ‘The manager turn-over has been a bit difficult for me, different managers have different opinions and once a new manager comes in you’ve got start off fresh and show them what you’re about.

‘Dougie Freedman bought me and he most definitely gave me my chance and I appreciate that.

‘I’ve had a few appearances under other managers but this season in the Premier League it’s been difficult because if you’re not in the squad, you can’t play.

‘To be attached to a Premier League team is a big thing, and to sign a new contract is quite exciting, and hopefully I can find my feet and they can stay in the Premier League, and then I can see if I can break into the team.’

He signed a new contract in January that will take him through until the end of the season with Crystal Palace then having the option on a new two-year extension this summer.
