Edgar Davids completes shock Eagles move
Former Ajax and Juventus star Edgar Davids has completed his unlikely move to Championship side Crystal Palace.
Davids, 37, was keen to get back into football after retiring in 2008, following a second spell with Ajax.
The signing is a major coup for manager George Burley, who took over at Palace in June.
Davids, on a pay-as-you-play deal, told the club's official website: "It's an exciting time for the football club, and it is an exciting time for me. I just want to enjoy football and show what I can do."
Davids will be present at Selhurst Park on Saturday for the visit of Ipswich but needs to build up his match fitness before making his debut.
Palace manager George Burley added: "We spoke to Edgar in the week and the boy felt enthusiasm.
"He has been training with Ajax but now it's good to see us agree terms with him."
The signing happened on the same day that Crystal Palace confirmed they are no longer in administration.
