Eberechi Eze: I wanted to be like Zaha, Bolasie at Crystal Palace

Former QPR winger Eberechi Eze is excited with his move to Crystal Palace.

Eze put pen to paper in a five-year deal with Crystal Palace today.

Highly talented with the ball at his feet and tough for the opposition to pin-down, Eze's football mirrors that espoused by many of Palace's greatest names. And, it transpires, two of the Eagles' more recent stars also played a hand in forming the attacker today.

“I remember watching [Yannick] Bolasie and Zaha in the Championship and just thinking: 'That's where you want to be, that's the goal,'" Eze said. “It's a great opportunity for me to come and show what I'm about, and to follow in their steps."

Palace TV asked Eze to look to his future, and explain his ambitions at Crystal Palace in the coming weeks, and even years:

“As a football club, I feel like there are great players here and it's a brilliant opportunity for me to come and be with these players, to link up with them and really push on… It's a brilliant opportunity for me to help push this club forwards as much as I can.

“I hope to see you [the fans] as soon as we can. I hope to entertain you and I hope you guys enjoy me as much as I'll enjoy you."
