DONE DEAL: Eberechi Eze excited to join Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace have signed QPR midfielder Eberechi Eze.

Eze has penned a five-year contract with the Eagles today.

Crystal Palace Chairman, Steve Parish, said: "Eberechi is a player whose development we have followed closely. We are delighted he has chosen to sign for us over the other clubs that were interested and we feel that this is the right club for him to continue his development.

"With our Academy recently securing Category 1 status, this further illustrates our focus on youth as we look to consolidate and improve upon our position as a Premier League club."

Meanwhile, Eze declared: “[The deal] definitely shows their [Palace's] belief in me - and I want to be here, I want to play, I want to do as well as I can for this club and it's a brilliant opportunity.

“It was the plan that was set out for me and what they've said about me and it's the most in-line with what I feel about myself. For me, that's the most important thing – more than 'what the club is' or whatever. I think the plan they have for me and where they see me, that's what it is.

“It's the position they want me to play, their goals, where they want to be, where they want to push, what they want to become, how they see me fitting in that system... The style of football they want to play suits me. It's perfect for me. It's a great opportunity and a great place to come."
