CRYSTAL Palace new boy James McArthur can't wait to get started at his new club and is looking to impress the fans with his all-action performances. The Scotland international spoke exclusively to the Advertiser as he left the Eagles' training ground late on Monday evening – and he believes Palace will not be fighting relegation come May. The central midfielder took heart from watching highlights of Palace's 3-3 draw at Newcastle United last weekend and is also happy to have a fellow Scotsman in the ranks with him at Selhurst Park. "I am delighted to be here, I want to be playing at the top level and the Premier League is that - I am happy to sign for Crystal Palace," said McArthur. "It's a three-year deal. I am heading up to Scotland to join up with the national team and be back in next week for training and get ready for Burnley. "I know Barry Bannan already here and have a good bond with him, so I'm sure he'll give me a hard time! "Palace look dangerous going forward so I think if we can keep scoring goals, we have a good chance (of progressing further). "It was an excellent game up at Newcastle on Saturday and we were unlucky not to win the match. "Scoring in the last minute makes it look like a good result but the performance deserved more."
