Crystal Palace have surprisingly swooped to bring club legend Andrew Johnson back to Selhurst Park.
The 33-year-old striker was a free agent after being released by Queens Park Rangers at the end of last season, and has put pen to paper on a short-term Palace contract until January to help bolster Neil Warnock's options up front.
Johnson will also help coach some of the club's academy players.
He told the club's official website said: "I am delighted to be coming back to a club that I love and have a real soft spot for. I would like to thank the gaffer and the chairman for giving me this opportunity and I am looking forward to helping this football club have continued success in the Premier League.
"I have also been given an opportunity to help the youngsters in a coaching capacity, something I am really looking forward to getting involved in."
Johnson's first spell at Selhurst Park came between 2002 and 2006 where he achieved huge popularity with the Eagles faithful, banging in 85 goals in 160 games to help the club win promotion to the Premier League in 2003/04.
