CRYSTAL PALACE have finally landed West Brom whizkid Nathan Ferguson.
A £10million move for the 19-year-old in January collapsed after a medical flagged up a knee problem which required surgery.
But the Eagles have now secured the right-back on a free transfer after his contract expired at the Baggies.
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.
Eagles chairman Steve Parish said: “Nathan is a fantastic signing for us, a player we’ve been committed to for a long time.
“It’s been a challenging six months for Nathan, and I’m genuinely so pleased for him that we have finally secured his services.”
