Crystal Palace youngster Sullay Kaikai says he is still deciding whether to commit his international future to Sierra Leone or England.

The 20-year-old who was born in London to Sierra Leonean parents and is eligible to play for either nation.

The striker insists he needs to establish himself in the Crystal Palace team before he can consider his international career.

"It's not a decision I'm going to make at the moment," said Kaikai.

"I have got lot of time to make the decision as to which country I play for.

"I'm just going to concentrate on my club football for now. I need to be playing regularly at Crystal Palace before i think of becoming an international player."

Kaikai made his Premier League debut in Crystal Palace's final game of last season when he came on as a substitute in their 4-1 loss to Southampton.

It was his second appearance for the London club after coming on and scoring in a Capital One League Cup loss to Newcastle United in 2014.

He spent much of last season loan with Shrewsbury Town in the English third tier where he scored 12 goal in 29 appearances.

Crystal Palace coach Alan Pardew recalled him for that loan spell at the beginning of May paving the way for him to be be selected for the final games of the season.

He was named the Sierra Leonean Young player of the Year for the second time at a ceremony held in London on Saturday by the football website Sierra Leone Football.com.

New England Revolution's Kei Kamara won the senior award at the same ceremony as well as the "Goal King" award for netting 26 goals in the 2015 season for his former MLS club Columbus Crew.
