One issue surrounds players from top flight clubs who are on loan at teams in suspended leagues, or whose club is still playing after the original end of the player’s loan spell.
Below, we’ve given an update on each of Palace’s on loan players.

Though the situation is under review, players returning from loan spells this summer will not be eligible to play - unless there are 'exceptional circumstances' such as selection issues caused by illness or injury.
Clubs who have loaned players in this season are allowed to keep their existing loanees for the remainder of the campaign, providing an agreement can be reached with the parent club.
