Crystal Palace chairman Parish delighted with Ferguson, Eze deals

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish is happy with the summer market work.

Writing in his match programme notes for today's friendly against Brondby, Parish is convinced of big things from Nathan Ferguson, formerly of West Brom, and ex-QPR winger Eberechi Eze.

He stated: "Another step in the right direction over recent weeks has been our signings of Nathan and Ebere. Both of these young men are exceptionally talented players in their own right and represent fantastic arrivals into Roy's squad, but equally importantly, they truly represent our long-term ambition. Crystal Palace has always thrived with hungry young players in the squad, and we are intent on striking a healthy balance between youth and experience.

"I must credit the work that takes place every day of the year behind the scenes to identify and attract such players, and rest assured that Dougie (Freedman), Roy (Hodgson) and I have a shared vision about our future and what is required to fulfil our ambition. I hope you see further evidence of this in the coming weeks."
