Joe Ledley has been confirmed as a Crystal Palace player this evening subject to Premier League clearance, after a fee was agreed between ourselves and Celtic for his services this morning.
The 27-year-old, who has played 157 times for the Glasgow club, also has 50 caps for the Wales national side, after a career which began at Cardiff City in 2004, where he made 256 appearances.
Whilst exact figures over his transfer are uncertain, Palace are thought to have secured the Welshman’s services for a bargain price, given the fact that his contract with Celtic was due to expire this summer, leaving them with little option other than to accept our offer to take him off their hands.
His signing brings an extremely satisfying transfer window to an end for Crystal Palace, with the deals we have concluded giving the fans and players alike real hope that a push for Premier League survival could end successfully in May.
After years of seeing very little positive activity at the end of every transfer window, this January has seen us well and truly spoilt.
I’m sure all Palace fans are feeling extremely content with our business this evening.
