Crystal Palace have captured Australian midfielder Mile Jedinak on a free transfer, subject to a work permit.
Scottish champions Rangers were thought to be leading the race for his signature, but Palace have beaten them to the punch.
Jedinak, who left Turkish club Genclerbirligi earlier this summer, has penned a three-year contract with Dougie Freedman's side.
The 26-year-old Australia international is set to link up with his new team-mates when they return from their pre-season tour of the West Country.
"I am delighted to be joining Crystal Palace Football Club at this stage in my career," he told Palace's official website.
"I am impressed by Dougie Freedman and what he wants to achieve at the club and I cannot wait to get started.
"Crystal Palace has a fantastic heritage and a wonderful set of fans and I am looking forward to playing in front of them at Selhurst Park.
"Playing in the UK has always been an ambition of mine and I am totally determined to make my time here an absolute success."
Jedinak, who started his career at Sydney United, departed Central Coast Mariners for Turkey in January 2009.
Palace manager Freedman was thrilled to win the race for his signature, adding: "I am absolutely delighted with this signing.
"I have tracked Mile for some time since he was first brought to our attention by (first-team coach) Tony Popovic and his contacts in Australia.
"Mile has a fantastic international pedigree and I know he will be a huge success at the club.
"Mile attracted attention from a number of clubs and I am so pleased that he finally chose Crystal Palace."
