CRYSTAL Palace have announced the signing of free agent Elliot Grandin this morning. The Frenchman arrives at Selhurst Park on a one-year deal having spent a number of weeks training with the club and featuring in the 2-1 pre-season win at Dagenham & Redbridge. The 25-year-old, who played under boss Ian Holloway at Blackpool, can operate on the left wing or just behind the striker. Grandin played 44 times for the Tangerines, scoring just six goals in all competitions before his release at the start of July. He came through the ranks at French club Caen before a £400,000 move to Marseille in 2008. Two years later he joined CSKA Sofia but was soon on the move again that summer to Bloomfield Road. His last game for Blackpool was against Sheffield Wednesday in April, while his last goal came against Palace's bitter rivals Brighton & Hove Albion last October.
