Adrian Mariappa never really caught on at Crystal Palace and has officially rejoined Watford after a year at Selhurst Park.
Things change so quickly at Watford that it's hard to say that Mariappa is going back to a familiar situation between a bunch of new players and a new manager but it is somewhere he has had some level of success. He's unlikely to be more than a reserve at Vicarage Road but he'll be a familiar one to at least some around the club and represents Crystal Palace continuing to search for answers throughout the squad. In the context of the summer transfer window, this should be considered a minor move. Tue, Aug 30, 2016 12:46:00 PM

Crystal Palace confirmed the club will not retain defenders Adrian Mariappa and Brede Hangeland once their contracts expire.

Reports suggest the Eagles have tendered a new offer to Mariappa, but the 29-year-old looks set to move on after making only two Premier League appearances over the course of the last year. However, a decision on his future will have to wait until after Copa America duty with Jamaica. Meanwhile, Hangeland will leave Selhurst Park following two seasons with the club, where he made seven Premier League starts this past season due to injuries along the back-line.

Crystal Palace have completed the signing of Lille left-back Pape Souare.

The Senegal international flew straight to London to complete the deal after his nation's early exit from the African Nations Cup this week. Souare becomes Alan Pardew's third signing of the week after the arrivals of Jordon Mutch and Shola Amoebi. Mutch has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract and Ameobi has joined until the end of the campaign after ending a brief stay in Turkey.

Crystal Palace opened the scoring in their Monday Night match against Fulham, but the Eagles went on to concede four unanswered goals, and were battered at home 1-4.

Selhurst Park was rocking at the kickoff of this match and the supporters went berzerk on the 7th minute when Adrian Mariappa headed home the opening goal from a corner kick. But the party ended there. Ian Holloway would not be dancing a jig at the end of this one, and Palace can't play Sunderland every week. And since their home match to Sunderland is out of the way, there is no reason consider Palace players for fantasy purposes. Their stay in the top flight may be a short one.

A late signing at the end of the transfer window, Adrian Mariappa was handed his first start by manager Ian Holloway in his debut for Crystal Palace as they lose 2-0 at Old Trafford.

Mariappa was brought in with the idea of being a candidate at CB, but an injury late in the week to teammate Joel Ward gave him an opportunity to show his versatility at the fullback position. The Palace defense put in a solid effort against the mighty Red Devils, not giving up a goal from open play and playing with only ten men for half of the match.

Sky Sources understand that Adrian Mariappa has completed his move to Crystal Palace.

Mariappa is a solid defender who will improve Palace's options in the central defensive areas of the squad. He also has a season of Premier League experience behind him having played for Reading in their last campaign and will immediately challenge the likes of Damien Delaney and Danny Gabbidon for a place in the starting XI.
