Reports have claimed that Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise has suffered a setback in his quest to return from his hamstring injury.

According to The Athletic, the Frenchman was making good progress towards a return before this setback has pushed that back.

Flashback to the final few weeks of the transfer window, and Chelsea had made the signing of Olise one of their priorities in a hectic transfer window.

It had been noted that the young star had a very achievable release clause in his contract that allowed clubs to make their move.

It was reported that the Blues did this, however it soon emerged that the player had signed a new contract with the London club and would no longer be on the move this summer.

Whether this was to insert a new release clause or because he is truly committing his future to Selhurst Park remains to be seen.

However, it now seems as if they could have dodged a major bullet coming their way, with them already suffering a whole host of injury problems at the club.

Reports today have claimed that the player’s return from injury has now been pushed further back, with him still not making an appearance yet this season.

The 21-year-old would only have added to a growing treatment table, although there are signs that there may be a few set to return to action soon.

Moises Caicedo, who missed the last game due to a knock is individually confident that he can return for the next Premier League game against Aston Villa, while Benoit Badiashile is approaching his own return to full fitness.
