Crystal Palace to sign Jerome Thomas

Crystal Palace are set to make their first signing of the summer in the form of winger Jerome Thomas.

After winning promotion to the Premier League only a few weeks ago via a 1-0 playoff final win against Watford at Wembley, Ian Holloway’s men are planning for life in England’s top flight.

With prolific forward Glenn Murray out injured for the foreseeable future after damaging knee ligaments in their home draw to Brighton in the playoffs, they have also lost tricky wide-man Wilfried Zaha who has moved to Manchester United.

Thomas spent last season on loan at Championship side Leeds United, before making a handful of appearances for Steve Clarke’s side before the end of the season.

He has rejected a new contract at the Hawthorns to sign for the Eagles and also rejected numerous offers from the Championship as well as a further offer from an ‘unnamed’ Premier League side.

The tricky winger will join up with his new side on July 1st after signing a reported two-year contract at Selhurst Park after buying into Ian Holloway’s plans for their survival in their first season back in England’s top tier.
