CRYSTAL Palace boss Alan Pardew has revealed he will bring new signing Keshi Anderson with the first team to Leicester City on Saturday.
The youngster completed a move on Monday from non-league Barton Rovers and scored on his U21 debut 24 hours later in a 3-0 win against Millwall.
Previously, while on trial for Brentford recently, Anderson score a quickfire hat-trick against Palace.
Pardew hopes to nurture his talent, especially as he has come to the Eagles the same way the manager did in his playing days.
"He's a player who came to our attention late and there was little bit of interest in him from other clubs," said the boss.
"He played against us in the U21s and just caught our eye. It's a great opportunity for him and a similar route I took from non-league, so he'll have great sympathetic eye from my point of view for him to progress.
"Six minutes (to get a hat-trick) isn't bad. He's just got a chance, it's opportunity for him and he trained with us today.
"I have put him in the squad for Leicester, I think it will be good experience for him to see what goes on."
