Jno Baptiste to Join Östersunds in January

17 December 2018

Palace development striker Francis Jno Baptiste will join Swedish club Östersunds FK on a permanent deal in January 2019, subject to a medical.

The 19-year-old has been a member of the Eagles academy for the past six years and hit 26 goals in the past two seasons at under-18 level to help fire Palace to the U18 Professional Development League South title last term.

He has also made 10 appearances for the under-23 side since 2017, seven of which have come this season.

Jno Baptiste will join up with Östersunds in the new year, a side that reached the knockout stages of the UEFA Europa League where they were eliminated by Arsenal. They finished sixth in their division last term, having seen manager Graham Potter leave to join Swansea City, with Ian Burchnall taking the reins in June.
