Crystal Palace have handed professional contracts to three of their latest batch of academy graduates. Keeper Ross Fitzsimons and defender Aaron Akuruka have agreed one-year deals while another defender, Kadell Daniel, has agreed a contract until the end of September.

Youth boss Gary Issott told the club's official website: "It is a tremendous reward for the three lads who are getting pro contracts.

"But they are all aware the hard work has only just begun and now they must show the right attitude to move onto the next level."
