CRYSTAL Palace have announced the signing of free agent Jerome Thomas on a two-year deal. Co-chairman Steve Parish confirmed the deal to the Croydon Advertiser sports desk on Tuesday, and it was just a matter of time before it was unveiled on the club's website. Thomas, who is training with the Eagles on a pre-season camp in Portugal, said boss Ian Holloway was a major influence on signing and revealed there was an interest in services earlier this year. "I heard of Crystal Palace's interest from January," said the former Charlton and West Bromwich Albion winger. "Ollie's the main factor, but obviously there's a lot of talent here. "Him and the chairman are planning on bringing in more - it shows what their goals are. "I'm definitely looking forward to it. I hope I can bring a lot to the team - I've got experience of the Premier League."
