From Wikipedia:

Franck Songo'o (born May 14, 1987 in Yaounde, Cameroon) is a French football player, currently playing for Crystal Palace on loan from Portsmouth. He is the son of former Cameroonian national team goalkeeper Jacques Songo'o, who featured for Spanish side Deportivo La Coruña in the late 1990s and early 2000s. He is highly rated as a future prospect by Portsmouth coach Harry Redknapp.

Although he was born in Cameroon, he has represented the French under-19 international team. He came through the youth ranks at Barcelona.

Franck Songo'o is highly rated around Europe and during the summer he was close to a loan move to FC Nantes before the move broke down after Songo'o claimed he wanted to stay and fight for his place. On 31 August 2005 Portsmouth signed him for a fee of £250,000. On October 20, 2006 he joined League 1 side Bournemouth on a one-month loan[1] but failed to make an impact. On 8th March 2007 he signed for Championship club Preston North End on loan until the end of the season.[2]. He became Neil Warnock's first signing at Crystal Palace having joined them on a month long loan on October 29, 2007.

Franck started in all 3 games for Palace since coming from Portsmouth, albeit on loan. Another bright prospect, seeing more first team action could be good for him. Came thru the ranks of Barca academy, and following the likes of Fabregas, Bojan Krkic and Fran Merida, could be very good in the future.

He looks reasonable value too at 20/77/£1.1M.

He's now played the last 3 matches for Palace and this will help his rating too.

If he can break into the Portsmouth first team his rating would soar, but can he do that?

Definately one to keep an eye on.
