Alan Pardew is delighted after sealing a deal for Chelsea ace Patrick Bamford.
Bamford will spend the season at Selhurst Park after securing his long-term future at parent club Chelsea by signing a new three-year deal.
Delighted with his capture, Pardew said on the club website: “Patrick is one of England’s brightest prospects.
“It’s a coup for Crystal Palace ahead of a host of rivals. I’m so pleased he chose us over others to help develop his game.
“Hopefully he will be a star for us, Chelsea and, of course, England.”
