Palace starlets win deals

Crystal Palace have handed professional contracts to academy graduates Jake Gray and Sullay Kaikai.

Midfielder Gray and striker Kaikai have signed their first deals until the end of the 2014/15 season. The contracts come into effect on January 1.

Gray joined Palace from Wycombe in the summer and has been quick to impress on the wing with several goals, while Kaikai, who has been at Selhurst Park since he was 15, has scored seven times in 11 games for the young Eagles as they qualified for the elite section of the Premier Academy League.
