Crystal Palace sign Andros Townsend from Newcastle United

Crystal Palace have completed the signing of England international Andros Townsend from Newcastle United. The player signed a long-term deal with his new Premier League club.

Townsend is Crystal Palace's first summer signing, the player putting pen to paper on a five-year-deal for a fee of €15.5m (£13m).

Palace's new signing told the club's official website:

"I'm extremely delighted. I had chats with the manager and chairman before I signed and I'm pleased to a part of Crystal Palace's future. By the sounds of things it's going to be a bright one and I can't wait to get started."

The 24-year-old arrives from Newcastle United where he spent the second half of the 2015/16 season having moved from Tottenham Hotspur in January, scoring four times in 13 appearances for the Magpies.

Chairman Steve Parish added:

"It’s fantastic that we’ve managed to get a player of Andros’ quality into the Club. He has played in the Premier League for a number of years and represented England on many occasions and yet he's still only 24-years-old."

“Andros is another exciting attacking talent that we have added to our ranks and I can’t wait to see him in a red and blue shirt in the very near future.”

The England international was named for England's pre-Euro 2016 squad, but he missed out in the final squad.

He made a total of 11 appearances for Enland since his debut in 2013 and scored three goals.
