Crystal Palace first team coach Ben Garner insists Jose Campana can still have a future at Selhurst Park.
The midfielder has been linked with Sampdoria this week.
"It has been difficult for him - it's been a complete change of culture and style of play," Garner told the Croydon Advertiser.
"He had come back from a serious injury breaking his foot then he came to us. He has been out to Germany on loan with Nurnberg, who unfortunately went down in the end last season but Jose is a talented player.
"Whether he will adapt to the English game and whether he will mature as a person to cope with that remains to be seen.
"It's one of those situations where the ball is in Jose's court a little bit, whether he wants to fit in with the style of play and how the game is played in England, or to seek a move elsewhere."
