Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock is delighted with their swoop for Wigan Athletic midfielder James McArthur.

The manager was pleased with the business done and was particularly happy with the acquisition of James McArthur.

“We worked hard all day and managed to get three lads in,” said Warnock.

“We had worked on Zeki Fryers for quite a while, he’s up-and-coming from Tottenham and has a lot to prove.

“He’ll be a good addition, a left-footer and we’ve struggled in that position, not just since I’ve been here but for a few weeks.

“James McArthur, I’ve been after him for a while, he’s a super player. I remember watching him up in Scotland and kept in touch with his progress.

“I think he’s got a lot to prove as well. He’s back with the Scotland squad and he’s looking forward to starting. He’s just our kind of player."
