Crystal Palace have completed the signing of youngster Eberechi Eze from Queens Park Rangers.
Eze has signed a five-year contract at the Selhurst Park, becoming the club’s second arrival of the summer 2020 transfer window.
The 22-year-old joins the Premier League side having gone through the youth ranks at QPR since joining them in 2016 to become a first team player.
The winger made his debut for Rangers in an FA Cup game in January 2017 and was later moved on loan to Wycombe Wanderers during the first half of the 2017/18 season where he managed 22 appearances helping them to secure promotion to League One that season, scoring five goals.
He leaves the Hoops with 20 goals from 112 senior games, collecting Supporters’ Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year and Junior Hoops Player of the Year last season as well as being shortlisted for PFA Player of the Year.

Having put pen to paper on his deal, Eze said: “As a football club, I feel like there are great players here and it’s a brilliant opportunity for me to come and be with these players, to link up with them and to really push on.”
Palace Chairman, Steve Parish, added: “Eberechi is a player whose development we have followed closely. We are delighted he has chosen to sign for us over the other clubs that were interested and we feel that this is the right club for him to continue his development.
“With our Academy recently securing Category 1 status, this further illustrates our focus on youth as we look to consolidate and improve upon our position as a Premier League club.”
