PALACE boss Patrick Vieira believes the club is one of the more successful at developing young players and setting them up for a good career.

Over the last few seasons, Palace have produced players such as Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tyrick Mitchell who have cemented themselves in the Premier League with their performances.

The club is not unfamiliar with producing promising talents with Wilfried Zaha becoming one of the league's best winger after coming out of the club's academy.

Young players such as Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise have joined the club from elsewhere and been able to develop into good Premier League players with the coaching at Palace.

Vieira wants to continue this trend as it is "part of the DNA" of the club.

In a press conference at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Vieira said: “Developing young players and young talent is part of the DNA of this football club.

“At Palace you had a couple of young players who came through and made a good career for themselves in the Premier League.

“We were successful on that side last year because we identify some young players and create a platform for them to express themselves.

“I believe this year it will be even more difficult, because we raise the level of demand on the players.

“Of course, having those players with us on tour will tell us whether they will be ready to take some part this season.

“If not, we will need to be ready to give them the game programme they need to play week after week and keep improving themselves.”
