OFFICIAL: Mathieu Flamini Join Crystal Palace On A Year Deal

Former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has joined Crystal Palace on a one-year contract.

The 32-year-old, who also enjoyed spells with Marseille and AC Milan during his career, has been without a club since leaving Arsenal at the end of last season.

"Crystal Palace is a very ambitious club with great players and I am looking forward to being part of the squad" Flamini said in a statement on Palace's website.

"It is very interesting challenge for me and I am very excited to be here. I had the chance to discuss the move here with Alan Pardew and he really helped me make my decision."

Flamini becomes Pardew's ninth signing of the summer and the Eagles boss was quick to praise the experience and leadership qualities of his new arrival.

Pardew said; " I thought it was important to get another midfield player, his playing ability will help us but also his leadership qualities and his ability of how to win games in a passing style. I am delighted that we have secured a player of his stature.

Flamini could make his debut for Crystal Palace in Saturday's trip to Middlesbrough, where Palace will be looking for their first win of the Premier League season having taken just one point from their opening three fixtures.
