Crystal Palace have today confirmed the signing of Nottingham Forest midfielder Adlene Guedioura for an undisclosed fee.

The Algeria international joins on a three-year deal just a year after signing for Forest permanently from Wolves for £1m, making 40 league appearances for the club and scoring three goals.

Guedioura joins Ian Holloway's side despite the deal being confirmed way past the 11pm deadline last night, and is allowed to go through because a part of the paperwork was done prior to the window slamming shut.

The  27-year-old had his first break in English football when Wolves signed him, initially on loan, from Charleroi in Belgium. He went on to impress in the Premier League, prompting then-manager Mick McCarthy to shell out £2m to make the signing permanent.

He becomes the Eagles' fifth signing of a hectic last 24 hours, and follows the arrivals of Adrian Mariappa, Jack Hunt, Barry Bannan and Cameron Jerome as Holloway looks to build a team capable of avoiding relegation from the Premier League.

As well as having experience in the Premier League, Guedioura is also a regular for his country, having earned 27 caps for Algeria including a substitute appearance against England in the 2010 World Cup.
