Parish convinced Kelly will prove value for money at Palace

Crystal Palace co-owner Steve Parish is delighted with the impact of Martin Kelly.

Kelly was snapped up from Liverpool.

"Martin's been through some injuries like a lot of young players do and he wasn't playing regularly but you don't suddenly become a bad player overnight," said Parish.

"We figure that it's a risk worth taking. We can't go and pay up to £10m for players in those types of positions. We look at that kind of deal and think yes there is a risk but the risk is really outweighed by a big upside for us."
