Sierra Leonean youngster Sullay Kaikai said he is concentrating on earning a Premier League debut for Crystal Palace before the season ends.
The youngster who was recalled from his recent loan spell at League One outfit Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday is now eager to make his first senior debut for Palace in the English topflight league after a successful loan spell with the Shrews.
“My aim is to break into the first 11 as soon as possible and take my chance when I get it," the 20-year-old striker said. "It's down to self-belief and practice. I put a lot of time in after training working on my shooting and dribbling. I'm confident that, when I get the ball, I can do something with it."
Kaikai who believes that his time at Shrewsbury has been crucial in his technical development hopes he can force his way into boss Alan Pardew's first team plans.
He said: "It's been a pleasure being at Shrewsbury, learning different aspects of the game and I'm grateful for the opportunity. Going into next season, it will benefit me. My all-round game has improved. I need to have a solid pre-season and see what happens."
Kaikai who was born in London to Sierra Leonean parents scored 12 goals in two separate loans spells for the Shrews making him the club's highest scorer of the season; the youngster was also named the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month for March for his goal scoring attribute.
