Eberechi Eze

Eberechi Eze became Roy Hodgson’s most expensive signing in his time as Crystal Palace manager on Friday, joining for £ 20 million ($ 26.5 million) from second-division Queens Park Rangers.

Hodgson eliminated rivals West Bromwich Albion and West Ham to secure the signing of the 22-year-old forward, who signed a five-year contract.

Eze, who scored 20 goals in 112 appearances for QPR and has been capped at the U-20 and U-21 level for England, said Palace offered him the opportunity to develop as a player.

“As a football club, I feel that there are great players here and it is a brilliant opportunity for me to come and be with these players, connect with them and move on,” he said in a club statement.

Palace succeeded in asking for the third time after having rejected offers of £ 8 million and £ 12 million.

“Eberechi is a player whose development we have followed closely,” Palace president Steve Parish said.

“We are delighted that he decided to sign for us rather than the other clubs who were interested and we believe this is the right club for him to continue his development.”

QPR manager Mark Warburton had stipulated that Eze would only leave if the club’s £ 20 million valuation was reached.

The deal is reportedly for £ 16 million upfront with £ 4 million in potential add-ons.

Belgian forward Christian Benteke remains the Palace’s most expensive signing, bought for £ 27 million in August 2016.
