Crystal Palace have completed the signing of Simon Thomas from non-league side Boreham Wood.
The striker, who scored 33 goals in 71 appearances for the Ryman Premier outfit, has signed a two-year deal at Selhurst Park.
The transfer is only set to cost the Eagles a nominal fee, although the Championship club have agreed to play a friendly fixture at Meadow Park next summer as part of the deal.
Meanwhile, Scott Flinders could be on his way out of Palace as the keeper is set to hold further talks with Chesterfield.
The 22-year-old turned out for the Spireites in their 3-0 friendly defeat to Hull on Tuesday and impressed manager Lee Richardson with his performance.
Chesterfield are desperate to get a senior shot-stopper on board as Barry Roche's recent departure to Morecambe has left 17-year-old Dan Whatsize as their only option between the sticks.
"It was good to have a look at him and for him to have a game and I will be getting in contact with Palace in the next couple of days to see where we go from here," said Richardson.
"It is still in the balance really. He is well paid down at Crystal Palace and there are going to be financial implications that we can't ignore and which will be a factor.
"He is a little bit rusty as he hasn't played that much football, I think February was the last time he played so that could be a factor too."
