Davis set for Palace switch

Published Add your comment

Derby defender Claude Davis will sign for Crystal Palace once he reaches an agreement to terminate his contract with the Rams.

The Jamaica international, who has two years left on his deal at Pride Park, will join the south London club subject to passing a medical and gaining a work permit.

"We've agreed a deal for Davis to come here," Palace boss Neil Warnock told the Croydon Advertiser.

"What I like about Claude is that he knows how to look after himself - he is physically very strong," he added.

Davis was signed by former Derby manager Billy Davies for £3million from Sheffield United in July 2007.

The 30-year-old spent the final three months of last season on loan at Selhurst Park.
