Confirmed: Crystal Palace sign Gary Cahill

Crystal Palace have completed and confirmed the signing of Gary Cahill from Chelsea.

The 33-year-old leaves Stamford Bridge after seven and a half hugely successful seasons, during which he won everything there is to be won in club football – two Premier League titles, two FA Cups, one League Cup, two Europa League trophies, and the 2012 Champions League. In all competitions, he represented Chelsea on 290 occasions, scoring 25 goals. Prior to that, he played for Burnley, Aston Villa, Sheffield United and Bolton Wanderers.

The experienced centre-back has 61 caps with England under his belt, and he was even named captain for a while, when his national team was under the command of the current Palace boss Roy Hodgson.

Having signed a two-year deal, Cahill told the Eagles’ official website that he saw this move as a good opportunity to continue playing in England’s top flight, and expressed his belief that he has joined an exciting team with a number of very talented players.
