03 Aug 2015 15:03
Crystal Palace have signed Connor Wickham from Sunderland on a five-year deal.
-
The striker moves to Selhurst Park for an undisclosed fee after four years at the Stadium of Light.
-
Wickham told the club's official site: "I think I needed the fresh start, I had four years up north and it's been a bit stop-start. Now I've come back home and I can settle down and see my family a bit more and hopefully let my football do the talking.

"I spoke to the gaffer last week and he said all the right things about the club and I've got friends here who also told me some very good things," he said.
-
"I looked at the team before I arrived here and the signings that have been brought in, and the potential to score goals and the chances that could be created was a massive influence. Hopefully I can add to that talent and make the squad stronger."
-
Wickham scored 15 goals in 91 games for Sunderland and helped them avoid the drop in 2013-14 when he netted five in their last six games.
-
The 22-year-old joined the Black Cats in 2011 from Ipswich, where he made his debut aged just 16 years and 11 days.
-
But the England Under-21 international struggled to make a consistent impact at Sunderland after an £8million move and was loaned out to Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday during his time in the north-east.
-
Elsewhere, Angel di Maria and Rafael are reportedly on the brink of leaving Manchester United.

Leicester City have signed midfielder N'Golo Kante from French Ligue 1 side Caen, the Premier League club announced today.
-
Kante, 24, is a Frenchman of Malian descent who was part of the Caen team that gained promotion to Ligue 1 in the 2013-14 season.
-
He is the fourth signing by new manager Claudio Ranieri, who is back in English football 11 years after being sacked as manager of Chelsea.
-
Leicester's website (www.lcfc.com) said Kante's contract was for four years but did not disclose the fee.
-
"The Foxes beat off firm competition to secure the signature of Kante, whose tenacious and tough tackling approach has seen him catch the eye of a number of teams across Europe," the club added.
