Six Players Released By Crystal Palace

13 June 2016

The club can announce that six players, including Marouane Chamakh, Emmanuel Adebayor and Brede Hangeland, will all be released following the expiration of their contracts on the 30th June.

Also leaving the Eagles at the end of the month are Adrian Mariappa, Paddy McCarthy and Chris Kettings.

Chamakh departs having played 66 times since arriving from Arsenal in 2013. He scored 10 times for the club, including their first goal back in the top-flight against Stoke City in August 2013, but has suffered with injury for the majority of his last 12 months in SE25.

Adebayor’s short-term deal has come to an end, having netted once in his 15 appearances since arriving on a free transfer in January, and Hangeland will also move on after two seasons at Selhurst Park which saw him play 26 times.

Fellow defender Mariappa will also be allowed to look for a new club after 49 games over three seasons with his final outing coming in the 2016 FA Cup final against Manchester United, while long-serving McCarthy made 151 appearances since arriving back in 2008 and helping the club survive in the Championship.

Kettings didn’t play in a competitive first-team game during his two years with Palace, but featured regularly for the under-21s and spent time on loan at Stevenage and Bromley.

The club would like to place on record their thanks to all those departing this summer, and wish them well in their future careers.

Meanwhile development players Keshi Anderson, Randell Williams, Andre Coker and Luke Croll have all signed new deals with the club.
