Parish announces Palace deal for Thomas

Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish has confirmed a deal is done for Jerome Thomas.

Parish has revealed the deal has been completed, with the South-London club reaching personal terms with the former West Bromwich Albion winger.

He told the Croydon Advertiser: "The paper work has gone through, he's training with us in Portugal so it's all done.

"I'm not sure why it hasn't been announced yet though. It's a two-year deal for Jerome."

Parish also revealed how much Thomas was looking forward to working with Ian Holloway again.

He added: "We’ve been talking to him for a while, he's absolutely fine and he loves Ian Holloway.

"He's worked with Ian before – he's a big draw for Palace."
