Eberechi Eze has completed his transfer from QPR to another London club Crystal Palace in a deal believed to be worth £12m.

The 22-year-old attacking player, who can play on the wing or in a more central role, scored 14 and created 8 for the Hoops last season as they finished 13th in the league and joins Nathan Ferguson in signing for Palace.

Eze has been the subject to plenty of transfer speculation during the transfer window, with interest from West Ham and more recently Fulham driving interest in the player.

QPR’s number 10 was reportedly a target for Palace back in January too, although the clubs failed to reach an agreement on his valuation at the time. That impasse has now been overcome, with the South East Londoner signing a five-year deal at the club.

Palace have been in need of attacking options following a disappointing end to last season, which saw Roy Hodgson’s side fall to seven defeats in eight, with a draw against Tottenham Hotspur on the last day of the season arresting that poor run of form. The side was also one of the lowest-scoring teams in the Premier League last season.
