Parr: Signed for Eagles
Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of Norwegian international left-back Jonathan Parr.
The 22-year-old has penned a three-year deal after Palace agreed an undisclosed fee with Aalesund.
Parr has been linked with a move to England for the past few months and he is delighted to have finally secured the switch.
"I know it's a tough league, a physical league and I know it was a tough season last year for the club," said Parr.
"But I hope that it will be a better season this year and I'm really looking forward to coming here."
Palace manager Dougie Freedman added: "I'm delighted to add another player of international calibre to the club.
"Jonathan is a quality left-sided player with huge potential and an exciting addition to our squad."
