Martin Kelly has Tweeted out that his move from Liverpool to Crystal Palace on a permanent move has been completed.
The move is a boon for Kelly's projected playing time as well as for fantasy managers in the Yahoo game who can pick up a potential starter for the price of 1.00 (he's an attractive-but-not-rock-bottom 4.5 in the format). What remains to be seen is how Tony Pulis shuffles the deck with Kelly and Brede Hangeland having arrived since last season. If Hangeland and Kelly go into the starting line-up then Joel Ward may move up into midfield meaning that all three players have big fantasy value. The worst case scenario would be Ward and Kelly rotating at uncertain intervals. Aug 14 - 12:19 PM

In an effort to actually see the pitch, Martin Kelly is reportedly close to a move from Liverpool to Crystal Palace.

According to the Daily Mail, the right back has been told he can leave Anfield given the presence of Javier Manquillo, Glen Johnson and Jon Flanagan ahead of him at the right back position. A move to Crystal Palace would offer at least the hope of playing time given the presence of mostly makeshift right backs at Selhurst Park last season. Adrian Mariappa and Joel Ward are both capable of playing right back but both are more comfortable playing centrally. If Kelly makes the move and can regain both health and form then Palace could be stronger in multiple positions for the move. Oh, and Yahoo! fantasy managers can be excited by the prospect of a 1.00 player scoring points on the bench.
