Holloway: No position for Nuhiu

IAN HOLLOWAY says he would not have had trialist striker Atdhe Nuhiu in his 25-man Premier League squad after watching the Austrian join Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday on a three-year deal last week.

Nuhiu had played in Palace's pre-season friendly wins at Dagenham & Redbridge and Gillingham, and the Eagles boss admitted he had mentioned the 23-year-old to Owls boss Dave Jones before the move.

"Anybody I have on trial at Palace, I feed with respect," Holloway said.

"Sheffield Wednesday went in and offered him more than we would, he's obviously closer to being in their first team than I thought he was, and good luck to him.

"He was somebody who has had a go, I really liked him, I told Dave Jones what I thought of the boy, and he came down and watched – they've gone on and signed him.

"I haven't got a real issue with that.

"There aren't many big men around but he's only 23.

"Would I have put him in my squad of 25? Probably not. I would have probably loaned him out.

"Good luck to him. He was a nice lad, he scored for us and he helped us win a game.

"I thought he had a great attitude and I think he'll make himself a player."
