St Etienne’s pursuit of Jean-Philippe Mateta is at a ‘standstill’ with the striker dealing with an unsure future at Premier League outfit Crystal Palace, Les Verts coach Pascal Dupraz tells Foot Sur 7. 

Now, there are a few explanation why Mateta’s return to France could also be doubtful with a fortnight remaining within the January switch window. 

The Mainz loanee, who began his skilled profession at St Etienne’s Rhone rivals Lyon, is within the midst of an surprising renaissance at Selhurst Park.

Handed a possibility with Palace’s squad stretched to it’s limits over the festive interval, Mateta adopted up a superb end within the 3-0 thrashing of Norwich City with one other purpose within the FA Cup victory over Millwall final week. 

Furthermore, Mateta’s £40,000-a-week pay packet seems to be just a little wealthy for St Etienne’s blood.

FootMercato declare that Les Verts, backside of the Ligue 1 desk and 5 factors from security, can not afford his eye-watering wages. 

That has not stopped St Etienne from attempting nevertheless.

Dupraz, who changed Claude Puel on the Stade Geoffroy Guichard, admitted lately that talks to convey Mateta again throughout the Channel have been underway.

Flash ahead to mid-January, howver, and the deal is now doubtful. 

Will Jean-Philippe Mateta keep at Crystal Palace?

“We are at a standstill,” says Dupraz. “But the membership’s forces are shifting to usher in a good recruitment by the tip of January. For the second, nothing is convincing. 

“We have defined criteria and we must stick to it.” 

Crystal Palace have the choice to show Mateta’s mortgage right into a everlasting deal to the tune of £14 million.

One suspects that the rangy 24-year-old will want greater than a few targets in opposition to Norwich and Millwall if he desires to earn a long-term deal below Patrick Vieira. 

Especially with Palace pushing forward for a deal to usher in Eddie Nketiah from Arsenal.
