Sunderland left-back Patrick van Aanholt has been officially confirmed by Crystal Palace in a £14 million move.
The 26-year-old joins the club on a four-and-a-half-year contract after four-and-a-half years at Sunderland. The former Chelsea product becomes Crystal Palace's second signing of the winter window as the club has now spent £26 million on left-backs with the addition of Jeffrey Schlupp from Leicester City. Van Aanholt has played in 21 Premier League matches this season, scoring three goals, and now reunites with former manager Sam Allardyce. "I am delighted that Patrick has joined us," Allardyce said. "We had great success together at Sunderland where he was instrumental in keeping them in the Premier League last season. He will add pace and energy to our team, has strong defensive qualities and has the added ability to score and create goals." Jan 30 - 7:02 AM
