Crystal Palace manager Peter Taylor has tipped Lewis Grabban to have a promising future with the club.

Grabban has made just eight substitute appearances this season, but has shown real flashes of potential ahead of next term.

Taylor is particularly excited at the prospect of having a speed threat after branding the 19-year-old striker as "rapid".

Palace will be setting their sights on promotion next season, and Taylor expects Grabban to add a different dimension to The Eagles.

"If you have three or four strikers, you need different types of strikers and maybe we didn't have anybody in there that was really, really rapid," said Taylor.

"When Lewis Grabban got involved in the squad he looked rapid and I think it would give the team a few more alternatives - that is an area we need to improve."
