Crystal Palace have signed midfielder Owen Garvan from Championship rivals Ipswich.

The 22-year-old Irishman arrives at Selhurst Park for an undisclosed fee, the first time Palace will have paid for a player since entering administration.

"I'm delighted to have signed," said Garvan.

"Hopefully this season I can play a bit more football, that is what I am wanting to do and hopefully everything goes well for myself and the club."

Garvan becomes George Burley's fifth new recruit since he took charge of the Eagles, with David Wright, Andy Dorman, Adam Barrett and Lewis Price already signed up.
