Crystal Palace sign Wilfried Zaha and Lee Chung-yong

Crystal Palace completed deals to sign Wilfried Zaha and Lee Chung-yong on deadline day, reports BBC Sport.

Zaha rejoins his former side on a five-and-a-half-year deal from Manchester United, costing the Eagles just £3M of the £12M they initially received for him back in January 2013. The talented winger led Palace to the Premier League via the Championship playoffs, but struggled to force his way into the United side.

He was eventually loaned out, and subsequently sold when told he would have no future at Old Trafford. As for Lee Chung-yong, the South Korean international joined Palace for an undisclosed fee last night, with Barry Bannan moving in the opposite direction.

New Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew will be somewhat pleased with his transfer dealings, as Zaha has performed well since his loan spell back at Selhurst Park. The 22-year-old still has plenty of time to prove his worth in the Premier League, and is still holding out hope of playing for England, so will use his time with the Eagles to resurrect his form.
