Crystal Palace sign West Brom defender Nathan Ferguson on free transfer

Crystal Palace have finally landed West Brom whizkid Nathan Ferguson.

The England Under-20 international has signed a three-year deal with Palace.

Ferguson, 19, had turned down a new contract with Albion, who he joined aged eight.

“Nathan is a fantastic signing for us, a player we’ve been committed to for a long time,” said Eagles chairman Steve Parish.

The Midlands club will still be paid compensation due to his age.

Ferguson signed a three-year deal with the South Londoners and said: “It’s great to be here.

“Crystal Palace is a great club in my opinion, and I feel like there’s a lot that I can bring to the team.

“I’m so happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started.”

Palace have long-term hopes Ferguson can fill the shoes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who had not been replaced since leaving for Manchester United for £50m last summer.
