Palace sign goalkeeper Alexander

15 August 2013 16:35

Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of experienced goalkeeper Neil Alexander on a one-year deal.

The 35-year-old, who was previously with Scottish side Rangers, has been recruited on a free transfer as manager Ian Holloway looks to provide some competition for Julian Speroni.

Alexander has never played in the Premier League but did spend seven years in the Championship with Cardiff City and Ipswich Town.

He is looking forward to playing his part in Palace's first season back in the top flight since 2004-05.

"I'm absolutely delighted," he told the club's official website. "To become part of a Premier League club is massive for me. I'm very much looking forward to the season – it's going to be a very exciting season this year.

"And obviously being in the Premier League, one of the best leagues in the world, was one of the main things for me. I'm really looking forward to the season ahead and I can't wait to get started.

"Julian's done fantastically well here. He had a great season last year, but it's important to have good back-up, experienced back-up and I think that's what I'll bring to the squad."

Holloway's men will begin the new campaign against Tottenham on Sunday and alongside Alexander, they boast eight other new additions, including former Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh who joined on Monday.
