Crystal Palace manager George Burley insists he has no regrets about bringing Edgar Davids to the club.

Dutch legend Davids came out of retirement in August at the age of 37 to join the Eagles but managed just seven appearances and left earlier this week.

"It was a privilege to work with him, everybody at the club enjoyed it, he's been a world-class player and we wish him well," said Burley.

"He'd been out the game for two years, he's 37 and he also missed a month with a family bereavement.

"But it was a great experience for everyone at the club and if you asked me to do it again I would. He was on pay as you play, so he didn't cost the club anything and he wanted to come. So I didn't see anything negative at all."
